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.

exactly.this is absoutely negligent homicide at the very least..if your not bright enough to keep your 4 yr old from waking off a cliff. you deserve death any way. he's guilty w/ out a trial.
A 4-year-old should NOT be near a 120 ft. cliff.

Obviously he still won't be paying child support in prison either. This guy may have been suicidal and planned on jumping as well. 9 years later though?

$1000/month is a lot of money for child support.
What is bad is that in most cases, the money is spent on everything but the kid.
