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.

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 sure hope these people get treated exactly the way they deserve to be once incarcerated.

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.

I don't understand how it's even possible to do this to a child let alone a baby. The pain and the horrid cries. I just can't fathom
