Evening of April 6

Judge Wanda sentenced Donald Washington, 23, of the 1900 block of West Franklin Street, to 20 years in prison. More than two years ago, on October 27, 2005, Washington pled guilty to the second-degree murder of two-year-old Andrea Carroll-Butler. September 23, 2004 Washington beat to death Andrea Carroll-Butler, his girlfriend's daughter, at their residence in the 1900 bock of West Franklin Street. The medical examiner ruled that Butler-Carroll died as a result of blunt force trauma. Washington admitted striking the girl several times with his fist.

A 20 year sentence is far too short. Donald Washington should be on death row.
