default JA'SHAWN POWELLS - Aged 2 years - New Orleans (USA)

WARNING THIS ARTICLE IS VERY DISTRESSING

An Amber Alert was issued for Shawn Powell on Saturday. His father alerted the authorities that his son had been kidnapped. It has now transpired it was a massive lie. Shawn (RIP) was found dead at a playground murdered by his own father. I am finding this case very hard. I imagine the full rigours of the law will be enforced. I am very sorry for his extended family. Thinking of you.

Father charged with murder for slashing throat of 2-year-old son Ja'Shawn Powell

An Orleans Parish grand jury Thursday indicted a man on charges of first-degree murder in the death of his 2-year-old son just after New Year's Day amid a dispute with the boy's mother over $4,000 in overdue child support.

Danny Platt, 22, told police that kidnappers wielding assault rifles snatched his son Ja'Shawn Powell, but later confessed as deputies led him to jail on Jan. 3 -- the day investigators found the boy dumped near a Central City playground inside an athletic bag.


"I'm sorry about killing my baby, " a handcuffed and red-eyed Platt said as detectives escorted him to Central Lockup. "I had a lot of pressure on me. . . . I had a whole bunch of reasons."

Platt told reporters, "No, sir, " when asked whether he killed the boy over child support.

Platt, whose criminal record in the Criminal District Court is a lone misdemeanor marijuana charge that was later dismissed, now faces death by lethal injection or life in prison if convicted of capital murder.

Ja'Shawn's body was found in an athletic bag in the 1900 block of Jackson Avenue, in a yard that shares a vine-covered fence with Van McMurray Park. The toddler's throat had been slashed and he bled to death, the coroner said.

Platt remains jailed without bond.

I can't find anything on the trial and/or sentencing of Danny Platt (the father who killed Ja'Shawn). He has confessed so it should have been 'fairly simple' but we know that all sorts of defence issues can delay trials.
