That's what I plan to name a boy if I am ever lucky enough to have one.
OMG the baby is named after this man? I would be changing that child's name NOW.

From April 2014:
A Blairsville-area man was ordered this morning to serve 10 to 20 years in prison in connection with the death of his 22-month-old stepson almost one year ago.
Indiana County Judge William Martin sentenced Juan Campbell, 25, for his guilty plea to a single charge of third-degree murder in the death of Malachi Patterson...
According to charges filed by state police, Campbell covered Malachi’s mouth with his hand in an attempt to stop him from whimpering while the boy was in bed early on May 17, 2013, then phoned 911 for help when Malachi stopped breathing. The boy was in a body cast and was recovering from a broken leg, prosecutors said.
