Warren Ross jailed for 40 years for murder of Tanilla Warrick-Deaves

Warren Ross has been sentenced to 40 years jail for the bashing murder of toddler Tanilla Warrick-Deaves.
Ross, 32, bashed, abused and tortured Tanilla Warwick-Deaves, the daughter of his then partner Donna Deaves up until her death inside her Watanobbi home in August 2011.
He will be eligible for parole in September 2041.
In sentencing Ross, Judge Stephen Rothma said Tanilla’s murder was ‘approaching’ the worst category.
“There is no doubt this murder was particularly heinous,” Justice Rothman said.
Justice Rothman said Ross had “not expressed any regret” or remorse, and “continues to assert his innocence.”
Ross’ mother screamed out “I’ll be dead. What about his kids?” as the sentence was fixed, while her killer son sneered at Adrian Warwick, Tanilla’s biological father, from the dock “see you in there, Adrian.”.
The Supreme Court was packed with members of the Ross family, including Warwick, while riot police were also on hand to keep tensions in check.
During the sentencing, Mr Warwick and his partner Brooke became distressed when Ross began signalling to them from the dock.
Extra sheriffs were inside the courtroom, after previous outbursts by Ross during the verdict and sentencing hearing.
“No person with any modicum of humanity could fail to be moved by the circumstances of this murder,” Justice Rothman said.
The standard non parole period in NSW for the murder of someone under 18 is 25 years.
None of the family commented as they left, with sheriffs co-ordinating for the two sides to leave separately amid concerns tension between them would erupt.
Among the horrifying details revealed in the seven week trial in the Supreme Court last year were that Tanilla had born forced to run laps of her home for hours, and was subjected to Ross whipping her with an electrical cord or his belt, as well as dropping a heavy toolbox on her tiny hand.
‘I can make her scream, watch this ... I’ll tell her I’m getting the belt,” Ross once said.
On August 25, 2011, after a toilet training accident, Ross bashed Tanilla’s head against a glass shower door, held her upside down over a toilet and then slammed her head against a linen cupboard.
Deaves was last year jailed for at least nine years, after pleading guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of criminal negligence.
The court heard Tanilla was placed in a pram and left there, dying, for two days until Deaves noticed she wasn’t breathing.
Justice Stephen Rothman said the treatment of Tanilla was “brought to the attention of authorities” but she continued to remain in the care of Deaves and Ross, who was once “particularly proud” that she called him Daddy.
He said the actions of Ross “were neither planned nor premeditated.”
“There was a shuddering thud, like something hitting glass,” Ms Deaves said of the noise coming from the shower, as Ross told Tanilla she was “an animal” for soiling herself.
“It is not clear if the fatal injuries were caused by the banging of the head on the shower or the banging of the head on the linen cupboard,” Justice Rothman said.

Tanilla's murderer Warren Ross jailed for 40 years

Child killer Warren Ross has avoided a life sentence for the murder of his girlfriend’s two-year-old daughter, Tanilla Warrick-Deaves, with a judge finding her horrific death approached but was not in the worst category.
In the NSW Supreme Court on Friday, Justice Stephen Rothman sentenced Ross, 31, to a maximum jail term of 40 years with a non-parole period of 30 years.
"No person with any modicum of humanity could not be moved by the circumstances of this murder," Justice Rothman said.
Ross relentlessly beat Tanilla, aged two years and eight months, into unconsciousness at her Watanobbi home on the central coast following weeks of abuse, which culminated in her death on August 30, 2011. He had moved in with her mother, Donna Deaves, just two months earlier and Tanilla had taken to calling him ‘‘daddy’’.
After a seven-week trial Ross was found guilty of murder by a jury in December last year but he continues to maintain his innocence.
In sentencing Ross, Justice Rothman said Ross had intended to cause Tanilla grievous bodily harm and had shown no remorse or regret for his actions, nor for his failture to seek medical attention which could have saved the child's life.
In the weeks before her death, he forced Tanilla to run laps, whipped her with various implements and hit her as punishment for soiling herself.
The abuse culminated in him striking the child repeatedly, banging her head on a glass shower screen, putting her under cold water, holding her over the toilet, calling her a ‘‘black dog’’ and causing her to bash her head on a linen cupboard door.
She lay unconscious in a pram for two days until she stopped breathing.
Tanilla’s mother Donna Deaves told the jury she watched Ross beat her daughter but was unable to stop it. She was jailed for at least nine years for manslaughter.
Tensions were high in the courtroom as the sentence was handed down with Ross mouthing at Tanilla’s father, Adrian Warrick, who became visibly distressed. Corrective Services and court officers stepped in to calm both men down.
As Justice Rothman announced September 26, 2041 as the earliest date for release, Ross’ mother stood up, banged her hands and yelled, "I’ll be dead by then!’’
As he was taken down to the cells, Ross, wearing a prison green T-shirt and sporting a goatee, yelled out, "See you in jail, Adrian".
Dozens of riot squad officers kept the two families apart.
Justice Rothman said Ross did not have a dysfunctional childhood nor has he been diagnosed with a psychiatric illness.
He does have anti-social qualities and a history of heavy drug use and he smoked marijuana immediately before he fatally assaulted Tanilla.
Justice Rothman said he could not avoid noting that child welfare authorities knew about Tanilla’s family situation yet the toddler was not removed despite ‘‘obvious injuries’’.

Convicted killer Warren Ross dishes out four-letter abuse at father of his two-year-old victim as he reads out tribute in court

Convicted child killer Warren Ross has abused the father of the little girl he murdered in dramatic scenes in a Sydney court.
Adrian Warrick, the father of two-year-old murdered girl Tanilla Warrick-Deaves, was reading an emotional statement about his daughter’s death during Ross’ sentencing submission in the Supreme Court when Ross began hurling abuse.
“F*** you Adrian you dog, where were you for two years,” Ross yelled from the dock.
“You look like a fool,” Mr Warrick said.
It took some time to restore order back in the court.
Mr Warrick was reading a statement on the affects of the murder of his child, who had lived with Ross and her mother Donna Deaves at their Watanobbi home on the NSW Central Coast.
She was found dead in August 2011.
“No one helped her while her tiny body was beaten.
“I just wish I knew.”
Mr Warrick asked Justice Stephen Rothman to consider a life sentence for Ross. He said the child’s mother as well as the system had failed the little girl. Ross’ lawyer asked Justice Rothman to be put him in protective custody in jail but Mr Warrick told reporters outside court “Tanilla had no protection”.
Last year the court heard evidence of the horrific violence Ross subjected Tanilla to for weeks which eventually killed the young girl.
Ross abused Tanilla as he tried to toilet train her, forcing her to run laps, whipping her with various implements and hitting her, the court was told.
Two children also gave victim impact statement, read on their behalf by someone else in court.
“You have done the baddest thing to have happened”, one child said. Another child said: “I’m scarred for life and I’m very very angry. “You should get a long time in jail.”
“What did she did so bad for him to hurt her. Nothing, she was a defenceless child.
A group of supporters wore pink T-shirts to court, Tanilla’ favourite colour, with a picture of the little girl and the words “stand up, don’t give up. Tanilla’s law” on them.
Ross had only been going out with Tanilla’a mother, Donna Deaves, for a couple of months when he decided to toilet train the little girl, subjecting her to prolonged and horrific abuse in the process.
Deaves has also been jailed over the death and gave evidence against Ross at his trial.
Several witnesses, including neighbours, described hearing Tanilla’s screams as she was punished, while her mother watched on.
Over 30 reports were also made to the Department of Community Services (DOCS) concerning Tanilla before her death, according Mr Warrick.
Ross will be sentenced in May.
