— A man who blamed slavery and racism for his plight in life will die in prison after being sentenced to consecutive life sentences for raping and killing his teenage daughter.

A Jackson County judge sentenced Jerry Bausby, 43, to consecutive life sentences for the March 21, 2016, murder of his daughter, Daizsa.

LaKendra told the judge that she and her sister had tough lives, according to a news release from the Jackson County Prosecutor's Office.

"She wanted to prove to the world that she was worthy of being loved ...," LaKendra said in court.

Daizsa was a star at her school, active in cheerleading and the performing arts, according to a news release from the school at the time of her death.

"She was an inspiration,'' Southwest Principal Earl Williams in a May statement.

Jerry spoke for 45 minutes, mentioning his daughter only once and blaming "racism and what he viewed as slavery in modern America as forming him into what he was," according to a release from the Jackson County prosecutor. »
