<![CDATA[MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities have charged a Middle Tennessee man with murder 22 years after he beat his infant daughter causing injuries that an autopsy says led to her death last year. The Daily News Journal (http://on.dnj.com/1ojrMR2) reports 41-year-old Anthony Shannon Lane was charged Monday in the death of Amanda Michelle Lane-Woodall, who died last year at age 22. According to a statement, Rutherford County cold case Detective Sgt. Dan Goodwin and Detective Steve Kohler questioned multiple doctors and other witnesses before presenting the case to the district attorney's office. An autopsy by the state medical examiner's office found that Lane-Woodall died from complications of blunt-force head injury inflicted by a beating when she was 5 weeks old. It wasn't immediately clear whether Lane has an attorney. Lane was convicted of aggravated child abuse in the beating and sentenced to 10 years in prison. Upon his release, he was convicted of abusing the girl's half-brother, Ryan Lane. Anthony Shannon Lane is still serving a 25-year sentence at Hardeman County Correctional Facility in the second conviction. Rutherford County foster parent Nancy Woodall-Holmes of La Vergne, who cared for Amanda from the time she was 3 months old until her death, said in a statement that she was blind, non-verbal and had to be fed through a tube. Woodall-Holmes said she hopes the case results in longer sentences for those convicted of child abuse. ------ Information from: The Daily News Journal, http://www.dnj.com
