Ex-soldier apologizes for fatally beating daughter

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A former soldier facing the death penalty for the murder of his 5-year-old daughter has apologized and is asking jurors to let him live.

Naeem Williams read a statement to jurors Wednesday expressing his regret for killing daughter Talia. The jury that convicted him of capital murder in April will determine if he's sentenced to death or life in prison for the 2005 beating death.

He says he wants the chance to be a better father to his two other children, an 11-year-old son who lives in Georgia and a 9-year-old daughter who lives in Tennessee.

The children testified Wednesday that they enjoy their relationship with him even though he's incarcerated thousands of miles away in Hawaii.

Williams has testified that he often beat Talia while he was stationed in Hawaii.
