Tyrone Spellman aka Anwar Salahuddin
He is also known as Anwar Salahuddin.
Tyrone Spellman likes to do two things –
- Doing drugs
- Playing Xbox games
On the 7th of September, 2006, Tyrone Spellman had spent the day sitting in a front bedroom, playing Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon on his older brother’s Xbox system. This is understandable, as Ghost Recon is an excellent game worthy of long playtime.
For a while, Tyrone Spellman let his daughter, 17-month-old Alayiah Turman, play with one of the Xbox controllers. She did that happily, sitting next to her daddy, until Tyrone Spellman put her on the bed next to him in order to concentrate more fully on the 3-dimensional gaming goodness.
Alayiah Turman started to fuss, like 17-month-olds will. She grabbed the controller, which Tyrone Spellman had placed on the bed.
With the graceful dexterity for which toddlers are known, Alayiah Turman pulled the controller cord, which caused the entire Xbox system to fall over.
With the burst of violent anger for which people featured on People You’ll See In Hell are known, Tyrone Spellman punched his 17-month-old daughter right in the face.
Then Tyrone Spellman aka Anwar Salahuddin, picked up his little girl and threw her down, as hard as he could, onto a wooden chair with only a few cushions to break her fall.
The reason Tyrone Spellman snapped?
The only reason I snapped ’cause I thought she broke my brother’s $600 Xbox and I don’t have any money to pay him back.
Alayiah Turman’s head was cracked like a walnut. Her father had cracked her skull, breaking it in three places.
Thinking quickly, Tyrone Spellman, aka Anwar Salahuddin, moved his daughter’s broken body to another room, where it was posed near a barbell in a feeble attempt to make the death look like an accident before emergency personnel arrived.
Doctors figured out what had happened fairly quickly and Tyrone Spellman, who has three prior convictions on drug offenses in two different states, became the prime suspect. Brought in for interrogation, Anwar Salahuddin aka Tyrone Spellman confessed what had happened after 24 hours of questioning by homicide detectives.
There was a trial.
The defense attorney, Bobby Hoof, worked hard to get his client off. Hoof claimed that his client was innocent, that the confession had been coerced and that the child’s mother, Mia Turnman, who has a history of child neglect but was 8 months pregnant at the time, was responsible for killing Alayiah Turman.
This defense didn’t convince the jury, who returned a verdict of guilty for the charge of third-degree murder on the 29th of January, 2008.
Tyrone Spellman aka Anwar Salahuddin, faces a maximum penalty of a 23 to 47 year prison sentence.
By the time he gets out, according to our calculations, the Xbox 2160 will be out.
