Warner Robins Couple Charged With Starving Child to Death
13 WMAZ ^ | September 14, 2010 | Bernard O'Donnell

Posted on 09/14/2010 5:51:28 PM PDT by Never on my watch

A Warner Robins couple faces murder and cruelty to children charges after medical crews found their 2-year-old son starved to death inside their home.

23-year-old Sade Shamon King and 25-year-old William Thomas Davis III are in the Houston County Jail without bond.

Investigators and neighbors say there are many unanswered questions about why D'Shawn Davis was isolated and neglected for nearly a year inside his Tiffany Place home.

JoAnn Smith, a neighbor, says she was shocked when the couple who lived next door were arrested Tuesday and accused of starving their son.

"Believe it or not. There's food in the back for the animals," she says, pointing to two healthy-looking pitbulls in the couple's backyard.

Notice that thier dogs were well fed and they have a pretty decent house. Let's see; welfare, food stamps, WIC, local food banks and churches. It is hard for me to think that this wasn't a deliberate act to stave and torture this child. Sick.

I can't see that happening in Warner Robins. These *^%@'s are lucky they are safe behind bars.

That happened in the movie Trainspotters. The couple was so wacked out on drugs they forgot to feed the baby and it starved to death. Wouldn't be surprised if drugs figured in this also.

Know what you mean. I can't find the words for this, even in Klingon.

Have to invent a couple new evil deities just so's I could take their names in vain.

I went to Dachau two weeks ago today, and I’m not shocked by anything people do. (I wouldn’t have been shocked before visiting Dachau) However, these “parents” need to suffer the ultimate consequence for their depraved acts against their child. Hanging would be an appropriate punishment.

Did the neighbor not know there was a child? If she did, did she never wonder where he was, and why she never saw him?

The neighbor did know that they had an infant: "Smith says she hadn't seen the infant since the couple moved in nearly two years ago.

I am not sure how complicit this makes her, since some people don't walk their kids around much (just strap them in the car and drive off). But get this, "The couple's 5-year-old daughter also lived in the home but seemed in good health, it says. The girl is living with a grandmother now.

The Grandmother should d@mn sure well have known about the health of her grandchild.

Our Heavenly Father is holding this dear baby close tonight. I pray He rescues all children who are at the mercy of savages such as these.

Amen. Even most violent criminals have some sense of justice. These swine are the lowest of the low, likely demons in human form.

This is such a strange story (altho I agree, how come the grandmother didn’t know?) But, the daughter was in good health yet the 2 year old was starved to death? Seems like something more going on. I recall a story many years ago in East TX a family with multiple kids kept one little girl locked in a room for years, they barely fed her. I can’t remember how old she was when she was finally discovered, but it was simply awful. The other kids were fed and basically cared for but for some reason the one was isolated and kept in isolated and starved.
Evil exists and this is it’s face.

Were they then going to feed the bony remains to the pit bulls? I mean that’s a sick thought, but little surprises me today.

Evil has a lot of faces — that was surely one of them, though.

This is not a rare thing. Often one child is singled out for abuse. That was the case with a poor child who was murdered in NYC a couple of years ago. The murderous father was basically unrepentant, if you can believe that.

I’m sorry I can’t think of the name right now.

I don’t know if there are any theories as to why this singling out occurs.

Drugs don’t appear to be a factor here.

From the article “Investigators say they don’t think drug use played a role and wouldn’t comment on the parents’ mental condition”

And as for should the neighbor or grandmother have known, the father is saying he worked to much to be aware of his own child. That’s really rich!

Perhaps one child has a personality the parent does not gel with (I’m not justifying it, but there has to be some trigger or reason). Still. It’s evil. How do you starve or abuse your child to death? Even animals take care of their young.

Funny how adults--not just relatives--develop selective blindness and deafness when a child is being abused.

“I’m sorry I can’t think of the name right now.”

Could you mean Joel Steinberg?

I live in Warner Robins and found this in the Macon Telegraph. Sorry I don't know how to post the link.
Sick bastards....

Nearly three years ago, the Houston County Sheriff’s Office investigated the death of 2-month-old K’ron Jarrell Davis, the son of the same couple. The infant died Oct. 25, 2007. The autopsy, which was conducted by GBI Regional Medical Examiner Dr. Melissa Sims, found that the boy died from “sudden unexplained infant death associated with bed sharing,” Galpin said. The infant was sleeping with the mother, he said. Sims listed the manner of death as “undetermined,” Galpin said. Sheriff’s investigators found that the infant’s death was the result of “accidental asphyxiation from sleeping with the child,” Stewart said. Unless some new information comes to light, investigators still believe the death was accidental, Stewart said.

Important update to this story found by ANKE69 (Good find ANKE69):

This is not the couples first dead child!

They had a baby suffocate 3 years ago and then let a 2 year-old starve to death?! This in incomprehensible.

Here is the link:

http://www.macon.com/2010/09/15/1264999/wr-parents-accused-of-starving.html

The news reporting in Middle Georgia is pathetic. I didn't even notice in the original story that this tragedy was uncovered on Saturday and only reported because the DA called a press conference on Tuesday. The story was totally missed by the media.

And to top it off they put this important piece of information (the other dead child) in an update to the original story?!

No, not Joel Steinberg, I think both those children were being abused, I think they found the younger child tied to a high chair. And, infamously, he was beating the cr*p out of the woman too (Hedda Nussbaum).

This was a more recent case, involving a little Hispanic girl.

Creepy side-note on Steinberg, they got that second child via my own obstetrician and allegedly that doctor was the person Steinberg called with his “one phone call” after his arrest.

Luckily I never saw Dr. What’s his name again.

Like my cousin I’m just losing my ability to recall names!

He won’t. It’s up to us to exterminate everyone associated with these crimes, which is millions of people.

There is only one thing to live for: the spilling of vermin blood
