PHILIPSBURG–Mentally-ill Dalton D. le Blanc was sentenced to 15 years on Wednesday for killing a two-month-old baby on April 2.
During the September 25 hearing, which revealed many gruesome details of the murder, prosecutor Karola van Nie requested that the Court sentence the Dominican defendant to 20 years and put him at the government’s disposal, or TBR, as it is called in Dutch.
The baby, identified as Mark Anthony Reid Jr., was found dead in the middle of Middle Region Road. Le Blanc had snatched the child from his home, where it had been sleeping. He had swung the child recklessly, finally dropping him on the road in front of police officers who had rushed to the scene.
The Court found it proven that Le Blanc had forcefully hit or thrown the baby’s head and rump against a hard surface and mutilated its body with pieces of broken glass.
