The pastor of a church in Wheaton, Minn., where a toddler died in a fight this month will finish up a five-day stay in jail tonight for uttering a curse word in a court hearing last week.


The Rev. Danny Barnes is the pastor and founder of Thy Kingdom Come, where a 14-month-old girl died on Sept. 4 several hours after being struck by a baseball bat. The incident has led to murder charges for David Eric Collins, a 50-year-old member of Thy Kingdom Come.
