In November of last year, Tekquan Alexander, an aspiring rapper from Atlanta, was arrested for beating his four-year-old daughter, Alani Watts, so badly that she suffered severe brain damage and the inability to open her eyes for several months. According to reports, the explanation that Alexader offered investigators in regards to the treatment of his own daughter was that he was trying to punish her for being a bed-wetter by making her perform “rigorous exercises with an element of physical abuse.” But instead of teaching the preschooler a lesson, she now has to partake in physical therapy as a result of the beatings from her father and she still struggled to open her eyes.
After Alexander caused Watts to pass out from the beating, back in November, she was rushed to the hospital where a doctor described her condition as, “extensive bleeding from the subdural hematoma located on the right side of her brain […] because of the buildup of pressure from the bleeding and brain swelling, the child’s right part of her skull was removed to evacuate the bleeding.”
Because of his actions, Alexander is now facing several charges including felony, child abuse, and aggravated mayhem, in addition to weapons charges. Alexander is the nephew of Los Angeles Rams defensive back Troy Hill and his trial regarding this matter is set to begin on July 17th.
