A Police officer Identified as Cassie Hope Barker, from Biloxi, Mississippi, admitted to manslaughter after her daughter Cheyenne Hyer was found dead in a patrol car
The police officer faces up to 20 years in jail after she left her three-year-old daughter to die of heat in a patrol car while she had sex with her supervisor at his home.
Cassie Hope Barker, 29, yesterday admitted the manslaughter of Cheyenne Hyer who was left alone and strapped into a car seat for four hours.
Barker abandoned her there while she romped with her then supervisor Clark Ladner at his home in Hancock County, Indiana.
Harrison County Circuit Court heard the youngster was already unresponsive when her monster mum returned to the police car, and her body temperature had topped 37 degrees.
Circuit Judge Larry Bourgeois said: “I don’t know what I could ever do to you that could be worse than what you’ve already experienced.
“You will forever be entombed in a prison of your own mind.”
Barker will be sentenced next month and the court was told Barker and Ladner were sacked and Barker was arrested after the death in September 2016.
The judge was told that Barker, from Biloxi, Mississippi, had left her daughter alone in a car on a previous occasion.
it was a passerby that found Cheyenne alone and called police when Barker went to a shop some months before the tragedy.
