Minn. man charged with killing toddler at church

| September 8, 2009

WHEATON, Minn. — One man has been charged with murder and another with assault in a baseball bat attack at a western Minnesota church that left a 14-month-old girl dead.

Bail was set Tuesday at $750,000 for David Collins, who was charged with two counts of second-degree murder, two counts of attempted second-degree murder and one count of second-degree assault.

Prosecutors also charged Darryl Kennedy with one count of second-degree assault. His bail was set at $100,000.

Authorities say Collins tried to attack Claude Hankins with a bat inside the church in Wheaton but struck Hankins’ daughter instead.

The complaint says Collins and Hankins had argued over $20 that Collins owed Hankins, and over how a washer and dryer in Collins’ home would be transferred to Hankins.
