It was 3am when a concerned father awoke. Suddenly he felt he should check on his daughter. So, he headed into her bedroom. But he never expected to see this!
In the middle of the night, the 33-year-old dad opened his young daughter's door. But what the hell! A massive man stood over her bed.
The father didn’t ask a lot of questions. He grabbed the intruder and beat him to a bloody pulp. Then he dragged the sexual pervert (who was later identified as 34-year-old Ricky Slater) away from his daughter’s room and called the police.
When cops arrived, they found the man unconscious. The suspected child molester died in the hospital the next morning.
Slater’s family is asking the court to charge the father who acted in defense of his daughter. So the cops upgraded Batterham’s charge from “grievous bodily harm” to murder.
Slater’s mom, Beryl Dickinson, said that because of Batterham, her three grandchildren were left without a father.
“They’ve lost their father, their beautiful father that they haven’t seen for years because he was in jail, which has nothing to do with this case,” Dickson told. “Just to think those little kids are going to grow up without a dad now.”
