Ryan Lawrence, 25, killed 21-month-old Maddox Lawrence with a wooden baseball bat and burned her body before dumping it in a stream in Onondaga in the US state of New York.

He pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and will spend at least 25 years in prison when he is sentenced next month, reported Yahoo News.

Before her first birthday, baby Maddox was diagnosed with a rare form of eye cancer called retinoblastoma and survived, according to local media.

“[Mr Lawrence’s] statements allude to almost a sense of jealousy about the attention that this child was getting as opposed to the attention that he was getting,” district lawyer Bill Fitzpatrick told CBS 5 News following the toddler’s death in February
