DETROTI (WXYZ) - "The carjacking didn't happen, did it?", a police sergeant asked D'Andre Lane, who is accused of beating his 2-year-old daughter Bianca Jones to death.
The police video of a four-hour interview session with Lane was played for the jury Tuesday.
Lane is charged with murder and child abuse stemming from the disappearance of his daughter on December 2, 2011.
Lane says Bianca was taken during a carjacking. Detroit Police located his vehicle but Bianca has never been found.
On the police video, the sergeant tells Lane that the truth will eat him alive and that he needs to come clean about where he put the child.
The sergeant told Lane, "We need baby girl. You ain't got to say what happened. Just say, tell us, where baby girl is". Lane replied, "I don't know where she is. I told the guy I don't know where she is. I don't know. I don't know".
At one point during the interview, tempers exploded when the police sergeant told Lane that he had the face of a coward who killed a little girl.
Lane and the sergeant both jump up from their chairs and begin to yell while pointing at each other.
"You know what happened! You know what happened!", said the sergeant while Lane continues to deny harming Bianca.
At one point Lane says, "I did not do nothing to my daughter. My daughter was taken from me".
"Clearly, there's a demon inside you today", said the sergeant.
Lane's eight-year-old daughter was expected to take the stand Tuesday, but the child's mother is reportedly ill. They live out of state and are expected to be in Detroit later this week.
The trial is set to resume Thursday morning.
