Baltimore police have charged the father of a toddler with murder in the death Saturday of his 2-year-old daughter.

Melonie Hamber was pronounced dead at 5:19 p.m. Saturday after she was taken from the 2000 block of East Hoffman Street to Johns Hopkins Hospital, said police spokesman Donny Moses. Police suspected she had been shaken.

Her father, Tyrone Hamber, 22, of the same address, told police he found the child unresponsive on the bathroom floor. Under questioning, he told investigators that he beat the child with a belt to discipline her, Moses said.

Initially, police charged Hamber with first- and second-degree child abuse and related counts. But during an autopsy, the medical examiner found injuries, which Moses did not detail, and ruled the death a homicide. Hamber was charged with first- and second-degree murder, he said.

Court records show Hamber was being held with bond.

You know pi, I don't know where it comes from. Is it a feeling of power that leads them to beat these children to death? Or is it pure hatred? It is pure evil, and certainly not manly. If that's what they are thinking. Mad

Why is it that an adult can beat their small defenseless child to death, but will scream "police brutality" and is protectected by law - laws that often fail to protect the innocents in the care of uncaring brutal abusive parents.
