Dad who ‘killed toddler’ has death sentence scrapped because he was tried by racist juror

Dad who ‘killed toddler’ has death sentence scrapped because he was tried by racist juror

Glen Bates’ conviction and death sentence for beating and starving his two year-old daughter to death was scrapped after it was discovered he’d been tried by a racist juror

A father found guilty of torturing his toddler to death had his conviction and death sentence overturned because he was tried by a racist juror. Glen Bates’ punishment for murdering two year-old Glenara Bates in 2016 was voided Thursday after the Ohio Supreme Court agreed that he’d been unfairly tried.

It came after it was discovered that one female juror had made comments on a questionnaire saying she agreed that black people ‘are more violent than other races or ethnic groups.’ The juror added that she sometimes felt uncomfortable around black people.

Bates’ attorneys successfully argued that the lawyers who defended him at trial should have objected against that woman being allowed to try him. She made the comments before Bates October 2016 trial kicked off, with defense attorneys failing to pull her up on her replies while arguing over jury selection.

Bates was originally convicted after the court was told how Glenara died severely underweight with bruises, scars and other injuries covering her body. Her death was ruled to have been caused by blunt force trauma and starvation.

Glenara’s 10 year-old half sister told the court how Bates and her mom Andrea would make Glenara sleep on the bathroom floor, with Bates also beating Glenara using a belt.

Jurors rejected Bates’ original excuse that he had just been ‘playing around’ with Glenara, and that her death was an accident.

He will now be retried at Hamilton County Court, although a date for the trial has not yet been set.

Andrea Bates was jailed for 15 years to life in January 2018 after pleading no contest to the youngster’s torture death.

The killer mom did not have to face trial by jury, meaning her conviction remains intact.
