Kansas City Area Man Guilty in 3-Year-Old's Death

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — A suburban Kansas City man has pleaded guilty to the death of a 3-year-old girl. Forty-year-old Kham Khamchanh, of Shawnee, pleaded guilty Monday to intentional second-degree murder. He admitted that he killed 3-year-old Yamarawit "Yami" Sahle, of Merriam in January 2014. The girl's mother was Khamchanh's girlfriend at the time. He said he threw the girl to the ground five to 10 times after becoming angry with her. He also admitted that hit the girl on several other occasions. The Kansas City Star reports that an autopsy found the girl died of a skull fracture and bleeding to her brain as well as abdominal injuries. Sentencing is set for October 15.
