Angela Biotti

Posted: Updated:

The family of Casey Biotti said he never would have harmed his own child Casey was 18.  The baby, Angela Biotti, was less than a month out of the womb of her 14-year-old mother.

On December 16, 2002, police were called to a home on E. Dalton Ave. in Spokane.  When they arrived, they found little Angela dead.  The baby's mother said Angela was in her crib when they found her not breathing.  Both she and Biotti believed the death to be accidental, but the autopsy showed otherwise. 

"The child sustained injuries that included a skull fracture and previous multiple rib fractures that were showing some signs of healing," said Lt. Scott Stephens with the Spokane Police Department.

Investigators believed Casey Biotti had been abusing Angela since she was born.  While they wouldn't say if he confessed to hurting the child, police said they didn't believe anyone else was behind the abuse.

Biotti pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in a plea bargain.  In exchange, prosecutors dropped the charge of homicide by abuse and second-degree child rape.  The rape charge was the result of the fact that the mother was 13-years old when she conceived.  Biotti was 17-years-old at the time.

According to reports in the Spokesman-Review, the young mother publicly defended Biotti.  But court documents show that Biotti later admitted a pattern of abuse that led to the skull fracture that killed the baby.
