The father of a young murder victim went berserk in an Ohio courtroom and mercilessly punched the man accused of killing his young son in the air.
Desean Brown, 22, is reportedly facing murder charges after he allegedly stabbed 29-year-old Nyteisha Lattimore and dumped her three-year-old son Nylo in the Ohio River while she was still alive.
He could face the death penalty if convicted, but the boy’s biological father, Antonio Hughes, was dying to serve out some of his own justice.
In court footage from Fox 19, Hughes can be seen in the back row of the Hamilton County courtroom before sneaking up to the defense table from behind and hitting Brown in the jaw with a right hook.
He continued to hit Brown while two deputies rushed over to grab the offended father and throw him to the ground.
In another video from WCPO 9, even after being handcuffed and surrounded by three deputies, Hughes continued his pursuit of the alleged killer by lunging at him. Ultimately, it took four officers to wrestle him back to the ground, as the video shows.
Hughes has been charged with contempt of court and will be jailed for seven days, WCPO 9 reported.
Brown is accused of stabbing Lattimore in December 2020 after months of planning her murder, investigators said, according to the Cincinnati Inquirer. After killing her, he allegedly waited several days before putting her in a body bag and having an Uber take him to the Ohio River. He told the driver the bag was just clothing.
Lattimore’s body was found near the Purple People Bridge on December 12, 2020, the newspaper reported. Detectives said Nylo’s blood was found on a Paw Patrol blanket with his mother’s body and a stroller was found nearby, the Cincinnati Inquirer reported.
Cincinnati police officers told a judge earlier this month that Brown killed Lattimore because she miscarried a baby he believed was his, WCPO 9 reported.
Nylo’s body was not recovered.
