Asmodeus - Destroyer of Men
WINNIPEG â€” Five-year-old Phoenix Sinclair's short, tortured life ended slowly as she lay battered and alone in the concrete basement of her family home, a jury was told Wednesday.
Her mother and her mother's boyfriend had regularly abused the little girl, and after delivering the final, fatal blows on a June day in 2005, left her to die, Crown attorney Rick Saull said.
â€œThis little girl died as the result of months of abuse,â€ Mr. Saull told the jury in his opening statement of a six-week murder trial.
â€œAfter the final blows were administered, she was left to die on a cold basement floor by both of them.â€
Mr. Saull warned jurors to prepare to endure â€œdepressing and even enragingâ€ evidence in the coming weeks.
