The reports revealed that after Milan Wash killed Kamarie Wash, she shaved the child's head and burned the palms of her hands to disguise her identity
FULTON COUNTY, GEORGIA: The father of a seven-year-old has been sentenced to life in prison for the death of his daughter. Kamarie Wash was found dead in a lake in Georgia in 2016 by a fisherman. Milan Wash, previously known as Michael Deon Wash, now identifies as a woman and changed her name while awaiting trial in jail, as revealed by the Fulton County DA’s office.
According to The Sun, prosecutors claimed that her father Milan Wash killed the child by breaking her jaw. Milan Wash came out as transgender and now identifies as a woman. The reports revealed that after Wash murdered Kamarie, she shaved her head and burned the palms of her hands in a bid to disguise her identity, as reported by WSB-TV. Walsh later dumped the body of Kamarie Wash in Lake Allatoona. Milan Wash pleaded guilty to nine counts including murder, cruelty to children, aggravated battery, false statements, and concealing the death of another. She was sentenced to life in prison plus 75 years.

According to The Sun, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis said Wash “went to great lengths” to cover up the crime. She asserted, “It is an absolute shame that a young life was so violently cut short by a parent.” It was reported by Fox5 News that Milan Wash and her girlfriend LaSharae Davis “withheld” food from the youngster, and “routinely abused” Kamarie.
Fain Willis said that Kamarie was murdered by someone who “should have been her greatest protector.” Fain Willis in an official release added, “While we cannot bring back Kamarie Wash, we hope this guilty plea and life plus 75 years prison sentence brings a sense of justice to her family.”
Wash reportedly called 911 a day after to report her daughter going missing. She told dispatchers, “She was last seen here in my house, here this morning or last night. I’m sorry.” The operator then asked Wash, asking if they called Kamarie's friends to which she replied, “I thought to call my mother, but she doesn’t live here, to calm me down.” Investigators shared that Milan Wash broke Kamarie’s jaw, which ultimately killed her inside the apartment off McClelland Avenue in East Point. Kamarie died of blunt force trauma to the head, as per The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
