A Milwaukee man charged with fatally shooting his girlfriend last year is now charged with killing the couple’s 2-year-old daughter. Her body was found in Blooming Prairie.
Thirty-five-year-old Dariaz Higgins was charged Thursday with unintentional second-degree murder in the death of Noelani Robinson. The girl’s body was found last March in a blanket in a highway ditch in southern Minnesota.
Charging documents say she died of multiple blunt force injuries. After dumping the girl’s body, Higgins allegedly returned to Milwaukee to meet 24-year-old Sierra Robinson. Prosecutors say he brought Robinson to an apartment where he claimed the girl was and killed her. A message left with his attorney wasn’t immediately returned.
