An illegal immigrant murdered his baby daughter after subjecting her to a catalogue of abuse. Nigerian Olusola Akinrele saw tiny Leeya as his ticket to avoiding deportation, a judge said. When she finally died from a brain hemorrhage she had 22 broken ribs, a fractured skull, a broken leg and bite marks around her nose. Akinrele was jailed for life and must serve at least 16 years, after which he will be deported. The jobless 34-year-old, who had been refused permission to stay in Britain after arriving on a student visa, met Kelly Inman in 2004 and the pair had a baby. On December 18, 2006, paramedics arrived at the rented two-bedroom house in Whittlesey, Cambridgeshire, to find Leeya lying on the sitting room floor. She had catastrophic brain damage and died in hospital 12 days later when doctors decided to switch off her life support machine.
