How Takota Collins' family remembers him

MADISON, Wis. — Born and first abused in Wisconsin, a young boy’s tragic life-and-death story has reached a major mile marker, now that his father has been sentenced for raping and killing him in Dayton, Ohio.

Takoda Collins died in Dayton in December, 2019, just days before his eleventh birthday. Prosecutors found his father, Al-Muhatan McLean guilty of raping and killing him–and fiancé Amanda Hinze and her sister Jennifer Ebert were convicted of manslaughter and other charges for looking on and doing nothing about the abuse.
