A couple from Utah abused their 3-year-old daughter so bad that they killed her, and then they tried to hide her injuries with makeup "so the didn't look as bad," according to prosecutors.

Miller Costello, 25, and Brenda Emile, 22, were charged yesterday with aggravated murder for the July 6th beating of Angelina Costello.

During interviews with police, Emile admitted to covering the child in makeup before calling 911 in hopes of hiding the severity of the abuse.

Detectives found:

  •  Bruising
  • Contusions
  • Lacerations
  • Burns
  • Open sores
  • Abrasions all over [the girl’s] face, hands, legs, head and neck

They also found a large burn on her chest and small circular burns on her back, legs, and feet.

Her arms were also very thin and atrophied, and her face was “void of definition from muscle or fat."

The couple, who proclaims to have ties to a transient Romanian gypsy community, refused to treat their daughter for her injuries because they were worried child services would take her away.

Two more children, both under 4-years-old, also lived with the couple but did not have any signs of abuse when police checked them.

How can people be so evil? These creeps need to burn for eternity in Satan's Lake of Fire.
