In an Ohio courtroom, the dad of a child murder victim went wild and repeatedly sucker-punched the guy suspected of murdering his kid.
According to reports, Desean Brown, 22, faces murder charges after reportedly stabbing 29-year-old Nyteisha Lattimore to death and tossing her 3-year-old son, Nylo, into the Ohio River while he was still alive.
He might face the death sentence if proven, but the boy’s biological dad, Antonio Hughes, couldn’t wait to dish out some justice of his own.
Hughes can be seen in the back row of the Hamilton County courthouse before coming up to the defence table from behind and hitting Brown in the jaw with a right hook, according to courtroom footage.
He continued to pound Brown as two sheriff’s deputies hurried to detain the irate parent and bring him to the ground.
Hughes resumed his chase of the suspected murderer by lunging for him in another video, even after he was detained and surrounded by three cops. According to the footage, it took four cops to pull him back to the ground.

Hughes was charged with contempt of court and sentenced to seven days in prison.
According to the Cincinnati Inquirer, Brown is suspected of killing Lattimore in December 2020 after months of planning her murder. He reportedly waited many days after killing her before placing her in a body bag and having an Uber bring him to the Ohio River. He informed the driver that the package contained only clothing.
The body of Lattimore was discovered near the Purple People Bridge on December 12, 2020, according to the publication. According to the Cincinnati Inquirer, detectives discovered Nylo’s blood on a Paw Patrol blanket beside his mother’s body, along with a stroller.
Earlier this month, Cincinnati police investigators told a judge that Brown murdered Lattimore since she miscarried a baby he believed was his.
