Man Indicted for Sodomy, Murder in 4-Month-Old Baby's Death

A St. Charles County grand jury indicted Jordan Lafayette Prince on charges he sexually assaulted and murdered a 4-month-old infant.

A St. Charles man was indicted Friday on forcible sodomy and child abuse charges in addition to first-degree murder in the death of a 4-month-old baby.

A St. Charles County grand jury indicted Jordan Lafayette Prince, 24, of the 3600 block of Fremont Drive in St. Charles, for choking a 4-month-old baby on Dec. 3. The child died Dec. 4.

St. Charles Police also said Prince forcibly sodomized and abused the infant, causing blunt trauma to the child’s ear, head, chest, abdomen, back and legs, and caused multiple tears in her rectum, bladder and uterus.

Prosecutors said Prince had deviate sexual intercourse with the baby.

Police said Prince was watching the girl as her mother slept and became frustrated when the baby would not stop crying. 

Prince originally was charged with murder, but prosecutors also brought the sodomy and child abuse charges before the grand jury. An autopsy preformed on Dec. 5 ruled the cause of death to be asphyxiation and death was ruled to be a homicide.

Prince is being held by St. Charles County Corrections. Bail was set at $150,000, cash only.

I am beyond disgusted and in disbelief that things like this happen..can't fathom it..my heart is breaking..and the mother..and I use the label loosely cause she wasn't one but the woman who gave birth to the precious baby girl should have been taking care of her..protecting her..she should be in jail too..she is just as guilty..more so it was her baby..flesh and blood..how did she not wake up..?something just not right.and how did she leave the likes of him to care for her responsibility..just feed both of them to the wolves..case closed..no trial etc..kill em both..they deserve more than death and will burn in the greatest pits of hell and @ "me"..you have zero common sense to stand by such evil..get your children checked out..physically and mentally cause you basically handed them over to a pedophile..do what is right for them now cause you didn't then!

This is where they need to bring back public hangings, only after he is torchered the way he torchered the baby.. People like him do not deserve a second chance, the baby did not get a second chance.

Dan DaMann April 27, 2013 at 09:47 PM
This evil, worthless POS should be tortured and executed in the very same manner that he killed this pure, innocent baby girl. If no one has the stomach for it, I'll volunteer to do the job. All I need is a piece of 4" PVC and a hangman's rope.
Kh April 28, 2013 at 12:08 AM

I'm sorry For your loss Chris Peters. The babys papa..I'm disgusted...can't believe he got bail...if he gets a light sentence I m heading to the court house to protest..as for "me" go to hell....
Lisa Hawkins April 28, 2013 at 04:21 AM
He is not even human, he is a sick evil demon!!! I pray that he suffers everyday until he dies, I hope he gets raped every day (all day) while in jail and in prison. Why cant we go back to the old days and punish these demons by torture, I think if we did this, the sick demons would think twice about what would happen to them, instead of free room, tv, food, and all the other stuff that we taxpayers pay for!!! The mother is a piece of crap!!! She needs to be punished!!!
Sandy Opfer April 28, 2013 at 07:40 AM

Public Hangings sound good A.S.A.P.
mary missy May 02, 2013 at 04:49 AM
This man should be torcherd and put to death.. it doesn't matter if he's mentally ill or sick or what...f**k you stupid people that think this guy deserves anything less than to be torcher & suffer & die. This man is not sick. He is evil and need to hung up in the market square and torcherd for days. And then hanged by the neck until dead. There's a reason our ancestors did things in this manner!!!
mary missy May 02, 2013 at 04:56 AM
Sorry but I don't hope he gets raped in prison everyday. Rape for a man in prison can become enjoyable for certain men..probably this sick f*ck will come to enjoy being rape..so I say" dear inmates at the prison this man is sent to: please tor her this basterd with hot steal rods and homemade razer knifes. So one day a guard will find him dead in his cell due to a horrible infection for gain-green or tec-nus!
CrystalSue May 04, 2013 at 11:38 PM
Me, That "real" person murdered and inocent baby in one of the worst ways possible... No matter how much we think we know someone just some people have a sick twisted side that they dont show... My daughter was abused by the man i thought i knew better than i know myself but sure enough he was a sick person as well.... DONT defend people like that and DONT feel sorry for them... You should be feeling sorry for that poor baby's mother and family who now have to live with this for the rest of their lives.
CrystalSue May 04, 2013 at 11:47 PM
I am so sorry this had to happen to your granddaughter. You will forever be in my prayers.
CHRISTINESOMEAN May 16, 2013 at 11:25 PM
There is NO REHABILITATION FOR PEDOPHILES. The fact that children excite them sexually will NEVER change. With that in mind, I say to hell with incarcerating them. Do to him/them what they subjected their victims to. Rape and sodomize this bastard with a baseball bat and then burn him alive. Free cremation services courtesy of the state penitentiary. B.T.W......Lucy Vega, I WOULD have clicked your link & signed your petition, but you totally overdid it with the every other comment posts you made. So now I'm not inclined to help your cause. Learn the difference between PERSISTENT and PESTERING. You need to. And for "Me": There are none so blind as the one who simply refuses to see. Your belief in this waste of flesh is an absolute insult to that innocent baby he slaughtered from the inside out. He should have his penis chopped off and sliced up and force fed to his fat, ugly face. I hope this piece of shit you obviously spewed out of your ignorant twat burns in hell for all eternity. God has no tolerance for the likes of your deviant abomination. He is rotten to the core. I hope he dies a thousand deaths and feels every one of them.

My thoughts go out to the family members that loved this Baby Girl. Her Papa called her Ashlynn and that is an angelic name. My heart breaks for you all. I could not imagine the anger and hate I would have if soemeone did this to one of my precious boys. The one that did it would be lucky if the police got to them first. I am disgusted that someone one would even try to defend this scum. He should die in the same manner that he hurt this defenseless child. I also feel that charges should be brought against the mother. There is no way humanely possible that she could not have heard the screams. It make me sick that she did nothing to stop this from happening. I would have blood on my hands when the police arrived and He would have been bleeding out slowly. I say that the members of the family that loved little Ashlynn should be allowed to do to him what he did to her every day for the time she was here on Earth. But even if it was done to him for the next 125 days or so justice will never be fully served. He ended the life of an innocent child because he is a monster. Jail and hell are not enough for pieces of shit like him. Rest In Peace little Angel. May you watch over those that loved you and bless them with gentle reminders of you from time to time.

Hey Chris I know this monster personally and I know him for what he is and have for a long time...I want to send my love, as much as I can spare at you and your family. I cant stop crying right now as I write this too you...I am so sorry that they system let him out to where he could hurt again...again I send my love to you and your family. I really hope you all get justice for this unspeakable crime!
KS May 24, 2013 at 08:14 AM
I left a post with the grandfather and I meant every word of it. I again after reading all the posts here send my love and support to Ashlynn's family. I don't know what to say at this moment other than I know you can go on because I had to move on from the nightmares that haunt me. I know this monster for who he is because I knew him as I grew up and even called him friend...I wish I would have never met him for the things I have seen him do and for the demented thoughts he expressed to me...I wish he would have never been born to grace our presence. I wish I could help you the family of Ashlynn...I wish I could do anything for you.

I sure hope these people get treated exactly the way they deserve to be once incarcerated.
Debbie Nguyen June 21, 2013 at 11:08 AM
The mother of this child has been indicted, she willingly planned and allowed this monster to do this to that little baby. Both should be tortured and put to death for the agony they put that baby through. Jessica Lynn Howell (Peters) - the article was posted on O'Fallon Patch on June 17.

I agree with everyone that he should be tossed out onto the highway at 100 mph BUT it won't happen. The sad thing is he will probably get 10 yrs and be out. The Liberals and their man boy molesting values will say he is rehabilitated. There is no such thing as justice anymore. And there never will be.
