DETROIT, Mich, U.S.A. - Court cameras have captured the moment the bereaved father of a three-year-old girl attacks the man responsible for killing her - punching him in the head.

daughter Jamila Smith, the Detroit 
Free Press reported.

  • Officers from Wayne County Sheriff’s Office quickly separated the pair as loud yelling erupted in the courtroom.

  • “It was pretty scary, I’m glad nobody was seriously hurt”,Mr McWilliams said.
  • Jamila Smith died of multiple blunt force trauma injuries in September last year. Her death was ruled a homicide.
  • Both Gordon and Thomas were convicted of involuntary manslaughter earlier this month.
  • Smith was not allowed to return to the courtroom but managed to avoid being charged over the incident.

Jasmine Gordon was sentenced to between seven to fifteen years for involuntary manslaughter and fourteen to twenty-five for child abuse.
