LOS ANGELES A father who had no interest in his 4-year-old daughter did the unimaginable hurling her off a 120-foot cliff to avoid paying child support, a prosecutor said Monday during the man's murder retrial.
Cameron Brown, 47, has pleaded not guilty to one count of murder in the death of Lauren Sarene Key in November 2000. If convicted, he could face life in prison without parole.
Deputy District Attorney Craig Hum said during his opening statement that Brown killed Lauren because he didn't want to pay about $1,000 a month in child support.
Defense attorney Pat Harris countered that it was an accident when the girl fell from Inspiration Point in Rancho Palos Verdes.

Mr. Brown is probably one of the most stupid humans to walk on the face of the planet.
a special part of Hell reserved for that guy
Someday, in a better world, this subhuman thing will pay for what he did to that poor child.
DOWN TO THE LAST PENNY.
Don’t forget evil in that list of adjectives.
If he is guilty of doing that to a child, I tremble at the thought of him in the hands of an just and angry God.
I remember this case. How utterly evil and depraved.
I read about another case like this. It was proved the victim’s injuries were consistent with being thrown out and away from the cliff, and then falling down....not falling over and tumbling and clawing to try to stop the fall.
May justice be done for this tiny girl
Send him to China. After all, he probably has lots of healthy organ tissue that can be put to good use.
Or send him to Iran. There they just hang the rope around your neck and pull you up. Takes a while that way but far more entertaining.
What a sweet and innocent looking child — though of course at that age, they pretty much all are.
How evil must you be to throw her down a cliff and watch her scream and fight for her life?
I think I will wait to hear what evidence (If any) there is.
So far all they said is that he had demanded a paternity test. I want something more damning than that before I spew fire.
Nifong was pretty good at getting people riled up with his fabrications. And he is not an aberration within the District Attorney profession by any stretch of the imagination.
I want this monster dead.
If convicted, he could face life in prison without parole.
Wow, life without parole. WHAT ABOUT THE DEATH PENALTY?
I remember this case. There is NO WAY you take a little child “hiking” along those cliffs. There are great kid-friendly trails not far from there. And how suspicious he was afterwards. GUILTY. I wish it had been him over the cliff instead.
Who in their right mind would do such a horrendous evil thing like that to such a beautiful creature? My daughter is 4, and I couldn’t even dream on my worst day in the world even imagine the thought of doing something like this. I’m suprised that there wasn’t a capital punishment conviction.
I’m gonna be ticked off about this one for a while...
Worthless POS. Put this word in your vocab, a-hole: Consequences.
Go with God, Little One.
There is not enough information in the story to form an opinion.
I will say this though: Based on what I am reading in the article, even if everything the prosecution says is true (other than what actually happened at the cliff), it only gives motive and opportunity. If there is no incriminating physical evidence, I’d find the guy not guilty, but I would be highly suspicious that he probably did it.
I’ve learned in court that a Jury can get a hopelessly skewed view of the character of a person - in either direction.
