Halli Rose Burton ~ Age 18 months

Halli, 18 months, was murdered by a man that her mother, Jessi Dunlap, met over the Internet two months before Halli and her mother moved into his home. Halli was there three days before a call went out to 9-1-1 about and unresponsive child.

Jessi, Halli’s mother was out of the house and left the boyfriend to care for the child. When she returned she could tell something was seriously wrong with Halli. Halli’s mother, Jessi, then made the phone call to 9-1-1 that would soon reveal that little Halli had been brutally beaten to death.

Her mother’s boyfriend said in a videotaped interview that he hit the child twice. The preliminary autopsy findings found blunt force trauma to the head as the cause of death.

Lee K. Ponshe is charged with first-degree murder and has plead not guilty.
