Man who beat toddler to death granted parole

A man who beat a Topeka toddler to death in 1995 has been granted parole.

The Kansas parole board determined that 46-Glenn Allen Heath Jr. will be released on or after Dec. 1 if an approved plan is in place.

The parole board had turned down Heath’s three previous requests for parole. Heath was sentenced to life in prison for first-degree murder in the October 1995 beating death of 2-year-old Cain Baker, his then-fiancee’s stepson.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Heath’s supporters say he has no prison disciplinary violations, has completed five prison programs, has a strong support system and a job offer.
