The prosecutor’s office announced today they are charging D'Andre Lane, father of two-year-old missing toddler Bianca Jones, with her murder. Lane had reported he was allegedly forced from his car at gunpoint by two men who then drove away, kidnapping his infant child Bianca.
Bianca Jones’ father now officially faces charges of felony murder and first degree child abuse. Responding to the announcement Wednesday afternoon, Lane’s attorney, Terry Johnson, told HLN, “I am surprised. I look forward to getting my discovery from the prosecution to see exactly how they arrived at these charges. Based upon what I know…there’s been no child abuse nor any felony murder. Just because people don’t believe Mr. Lane’s version of the events of December 2, that does not arise to the magnitude of the charges that have been brought forth today.”
