WHEATON, MN -
A western Minnesota man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for killing a toddler while swinging a baseball bat at her stepfather inside a Wheaton church.
Judge Gerald Seibel sentenced David Collins of Wheaton on Thursday. Collins accidentally hit 14-month-old Aundrea Brownlow as he attacked her stepfather, Claude Hankins, with a bat on September 3, 2009, in Thy Kingdom Come church. The men had clashed over a $20 debt and a used washer and dryer.
Traverse County Attorney Matt Franzese tells The Forum of Fargo, N.D., that with time served and a good record in prison, Collins will likely serve about 12 1/2 years.
