Charges filed after Festus toddler died from abuse

Festus, MO (KTRS) – The boyfriend of a woman whose daughter died over the weekend, is facing charges for child abuse. Dewayne Boyer is charged with felony child abuse.

Police were called to Taylor Fast’s home in Festus on Sunday. There, police found 17-month-old Layla Fast. Officers said she was unresponsive and she had bruises over much of body. Taylor told police that she thought her daughter had been bitten by a spider. When paramedics arrived, they determined that Layla had been dead for hours and discovered injuries to her neck and head.

Festus Police Chief Tim Lewis said it didn’t take someone with medical training to see that the young girl had been beaten and calls this the worst case of child abuse he has seen in 32 years on the job.

A three-year-old boy was removed from the residence and received treatment for a broken leg.
