Family raising money for funeral cost of infant baby girl allegedly beaten to death

Hampden County

An 8-month-old Westfield baby has died after allegedly being beaten by her father.

There are multiple ways the family is raising money after Torres died Monday night. Torres died after she was allegedly beaten by her father.

According to court documents, an officer was called to Baystate Noble Hospital Saturday for a report of an unresponsive 8-month-old baby.

Her father, 28-year old Daniel Torres of Westfield, is now facing several charges, including assault and battery on a child with injury. 

22News went to Walmart in Westfield where Lily’s mother, Tianna Seymour, and the rest of her family were passing out candles and accepting donations for Lily’s funeral expenses.

“We want it to be about her we want her to be remembered for what happened to her not him to remembered for what he did,” Seymour told 22News.

Seymour and her family will be holding a candlelit vigil tonight on the Westfield green in honor of her daughter.

Torres is being held on a $1 million bail and is due back in court on August 28 for a pre-trial hearing.
