NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — A grand jury has indicted a Virginia man on murder and child abuse charges in the 2017 death of a toddler.
The Virginian-Pilot reports 25-year-old Daquan Keith Farmer-Harrison of Chesapeake was indicted by a grand jury in the death of 2-year-old Skylin Perry of Portsmouth.
Shortly before noon on Dec. 8 last year, Chesapeake police responded to the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters. Police spokeswoman Kelly Elliott said officers took a child abuse report following an incident at a home in Chesapeake.
Skylin died at the hospital two days later.
Court documents don’t say what happened, but the indictments returned in November accuse Farmer-Harrison of harming the child between Dec. 8 and 10 last year.
Farmer-Harrison is jailed without bond. His attorney, James Broccoletti, declined comment on the charges.
