Murder charges filed in child’s death

Written by 

Eric Davis, 23, was indicted on one charge of first-degree murder and two charges of felony child abuse Monday. He is currently being held without bond.

Davis’ 4-year-old daughter was found injured and abuse in the Qualla Motel in Whittier Oct. 11. She was transported to Mission Hospital where she later died.

Davis initially faced charges of intentional child abused and inflicting serious bodily harm, but after an autopsy was completed, law enforcement added first-degree murder to the list of charges, which a grand jury indicted Davis on.

If found guilty of murder, Davis could face life in prison or even the death penalty.
