Screen Shot 2013-03-07 at 10.30.45 AMAuthorities in northeast Kansas say a 27-year-old Hiawatha man is charged in the death of a 4-year-old boy.

Brown County Prosecutor Kevin Hill says Lee Davis IV, also known as Jimmy Davis, was charged with first-degree murder and felony abuse of the child, who died Tuesday.

Davis is being held on $2 million bond and is expected to have a lawyer formally appointed for him Thursday or Friday.

The child was taken by air ambulance from Hiawatha Community Hospital on Sunday to Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, where he died Tuesday.

A preliminary hearing for Davis has been set for March 13.

    I hope he rots! He will probably get put in protective custody. I think they should put pictures of HIS SON on his walls and make him look at his sweet little face everyday! What a POS?!?! Fry him in an electric chair he deserves to feel as much pain as he put that baby thru and then some! RIP little man!

      He beat his son to death. He told the Drs that he had a seizure and fell down the steps. They did an autopsy and said that he had so much brain trauma and that was what had caused the seizures…. The little boy also had belt, hand, and electrical cord prints on his body….
