MILWAUKEE (Star Tribune) — A Milwaukee man charged with fatally shooting his girlfriend last year is now charged with killing the couple’s 2-year-old daughter.
Thirty-five-year-old Dariaz Higgins was charged Thursday with unintentional second-degree murder in the death of Noelani Robinson. The girl’s body was found last March in a blanket in a highway ditch in southern Minnesota.
Charging documents say she died of multiple blunt force injuries.
After dumping the girl’s body, Higgins allegedly returned to Milwaukee to meet 24-year-old Sierra Robinson.
Prosecutors say he brought Robinson to an apartment where he claimed the girl was and killed her.
A message left with his attorney wasn’t immediately returned.
