Desiree Nicole Wade, 8 months old, was killed.  Just recently the trial of her mother’s boyfriend Charles Brassfield, 24, began.  Prosecutors seem sure that Brassfield was the culprit in the child’s death, but so far there is no conclusive evidence that it was him and he has maintained that he is innocent throughout.

Eddie Lee Daniels, 24, has been charged with the first-degree murder of his son, 2-month-old Achilles.  He suffered a broken femur (one of the hardest bones in the body to break) and blunt force trauma to the head.
