Man Sentenced For Dismemberment Of His Daughter

A 68-year-old man has been sentenced to 41 years in prison. He fatally injured his daughter. Her dismembered remains were found in the dumpster. Lawrence Banks, who changed his name to Malik Samartaney was convicted of second-degree fatal injury and unauthorized disposal of a body. He fatally injured his daughter Dominique Foster who was 43-year-old after expressing outrage about her drug addiction. The Judge passed down the maximum sentence. She said: “unfathomable” to think of how Foster suffered. “When she got into her father’s van that day, she had no way of knowing that she would end up in pieces in a shopping cart,” The Judge said. The Defense lawyer presented a scenario that Foster may have been fatally injured by members of the notorious street gang MS-13. The attorney said that her client maintains his innocence and plans to appeal the ruling. Some of the victim’s remains were found stuffed inside trash bags. Someone had reported the scene net the dumpster suspicious. Her her head, hands and feet were never found. Authorities couldn’t link Samartaney to the crime with DNA evidence or weapon. Due to not having DNA evidence or a weapon, Prosecutors had to base their case largely on circumstantial evidence. One thing
that they went on was the man’s ex fiancée saying that it was very hard to reach him on the day that Foster was fatally injured. Another thing that they had was the fact that this was not his first rodeo. He had two previous fatal injury convictions. He plead guilty in the 1990s to fatally injuring a friend and no denial of fatally injuring his teenage son. He served a simultaneous 20-year prison sentence, and was released in 2002. Samartaney also was convicted of assault after throwing his now deceased daughter Foster, then just 7 months old, through a glass door during an altercation with her mother in 1975. The man asked the judge for mercy, saying that he had promised God after his son’s death that he wouldn’t fatally injure someone again. “Your honor, I’m very sorry for the death of my daughter, but I did not do that,” Samartaney said. “I dream every night that I find the person who would do that.” Victim impact statements and records described Foster as a loving mother, grandmother and sister. “Your honor, I’m asking for the longest sentence possible,” Foster’s daughter wrote in her statement. “I ask this not for revenge but for everyone’s safety.”
