Former MLB pitcher Sergio Miter was sentenced Thursday to 50 years in prison by a Mexican court after he raped and murdered his 19-year-old girlfriend’s toddler daughter.

A court in the northeastern state of Coahuila found Miter guilty on Wednesday of the July 12, 2020 femicide of the 22-month-old child, identified only as Ines by authorities. He was also ordered to pay $66,429 in damages.

An autopsy previously presented by the Coahuila State Office of the Attorney General showed that Ines’ had been sexually assaulted and that her death was the result of hypovolemic shock that caused her renal artery to bleed.

According to prosecutors, Miter, who was born in LA, attacked the daughter of his then 19-year-old girlfriend, Liliana Ines, at his home in the Coahuila borough, Saltillo, the day before the child tragically died.

The assault and sexual assault on Ines was allegedly fueled by Miter’s reluctance to let Liliana Ines go through with her pregnancy. Liliana Ines told the court during the trial that the former Major Leaguer “wanted to force me to have an abortion when I was four months pregnant.” It is not known whether she carried the child she was pregnant with to term.

Prosecutors say Miter punched a defenseless Ines in the lower back on July 11 after an argument between him and the toddler’s mother.

A court in Coahuila, Mexico, sentenced former Major Leaguer Sergio Miter to 50 years on Thursday for the July 2020 murder of his girlfriend's one-year-old daughter.

Liliana Ines rushed Ines to Saltillo Children’s Hospital after the child began vomiting and passing out, but doctors pronounced her dead just hours after she was admitted.

Miter, who spent much of his childhood in Tijuana, was taken into custody the day after Ines’ death and tried to cover up the crime by telling investigators that Ines had fallen down a flight of stairs. He was charged with femicide and the inappropriate abuse of a minor a week after his arrest.

Liliana Ines was arrested on August 26 and charged with femicide, but was acquitted of any wrongdoing on October 8, 2021.

At the trial, Miltre tried to exonerate herself from the murder charge during closing pleas Wednesday by telling the court that Liliana Ines was responsible for her daughter’s death by raising her past domestic abuse.

“I had the confidence to open my door to protect her from the violence she was already suffering,” Miter said. “I am disappointed because all week it has not been shown that I hit the girl and on the other hand they have not taken into account that the girl had Liliana’s fist marked and that it is they who judge me.”

The Los Angeles resident was also arrested in September 2019 in connection with a domestic dispute with a woman identified as Jazmin at a Saltillo hotel, but the charges were later dropped after he paid a fine.

Surveillance footage of the incident showed a naked Jazmin running out of the room to the elevator before Miter chased her as a man watched. Miter guided Jazmin down the hall and pushed her back into their room.

Miter played eight seasons in the majors with the Chicago Cubs, Florida Marlins, Milwaukee Brewers and New York Yankees, last pitching for in 2011.
