Daniel Dale Lamborn

A Cabool man charged with killing his four year-old stepdaughter in 2008 has pleaded guilty.

Texas County prosecutors originally charged Daniel Dale Lamborn, 25, on December 30, 2008, with child abuse resulting in death for the November 2008 death of 4 year-old Camille Fayte Denis'. That charge was amended to voluntary manslaughter.

An investigation into the little girls death was launched on November 22, 2008, by the Missouri Department of Social Services and the Texas County Child Welfare Board.

According to the probable cause statement, the coroner told investigators that he believed Camille could have died from asphyxiation. However, an autopsy revealed that the little girl died from a tear to the right atrium of her heart.

During an interview with Sgt. Travis Davis of the Texas County Sheriff's department, Lamborn told Davis he was home alone with his children when a large toy box fell on little Camille's chest. When confronted with the autopsy results, Davis said Lamborn changed his story offering multiple accounts of what happened, they include; tossing Camille in the air, and stepping on the little girls chest.

He later told detectives that the toy box story was a lie, that he fell on top of the toddler with his forearm. He then requested an attorney.

He admitted in court that he punched Camille in the chest twice because she wouldn't mind him.

Lamborn, who's trial was moved to Phelps County on a change of venue, is scheduled to be sentenced on July 8th.
