Charges upgraded in death of St. Charles infant

Monday, 29 April 2013 17:55 Published in Local News

 ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - A St. Charles man charged in the death of a 4-month-old girl now faces additional charges, including first-degree murder and forcible sodomy.

 

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Monday that 24-year-old Jordan Lafayette Prince is also charged with child abuse in the baby's December 2012 death. He was originally charged with second-degree murder and endangering the welfare of a child.

 

   Court records show that the cause of death was asphyxiation, but the child also suffered serious injuries related to sodomy, which caused internal bleeding.

 

   Prince told police he became frustrated with the baby because she wouldn't stop crying. He's been jailed on 150,000, cash bail.

 

   A lawyer representing Prince didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Monday.

Grab your friends and family for lunch, dinner or happy hour and help raise money and awareness in the first "Dine for Relief" in support of the fight against Scleroderma.  

Scleroderma comes from two Greek words: “sclero” meaning hard, and “derma” meaning skin.  Scleroderma is a chronic autoimmune disorder which means the body's tissues are attacked by its own immune system.  Scleroderma is an overproduction of collagen that can result in thickening or tightening of skin and scarring of internal organs. 

Participating restaurants will donate a percentage of the check to The Relief Foundation started by St. Louis Scleroderma patient, Kelly Ellison.

In order for The Relief Foundation to benefit, you must take a restaurant-specific flyer with you when you dine. Go to www.relief-foundation.org

Participating restaurants are:
