    RI - Marquel Davis, 2, beaten to death, Providence, 1 Aug 2005

    The two men charged with murder were supposed to be watching a boy Sunday night, but instead, police said, they assaulted the boy several times and the 2-year-old died of head trauma and bleeding to his brain.

    Troy Figgs, 20, and Akeem King, 20, are accused of repeatedly assaulting Marquel Davis, who'd been left in their care. Investigators also said the two men had watched the child on and off for several days.

    A source told NBC 10 News that the two suspects were high when the incident took place.

    Police said Marquel's mother, Michelle Thurman, 19, left him with the men on Sunday. Neither man was the child's father, but police said she had a relationship with one of them. http://www.turnto10.com/news/4800237/detail.html

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    PROVIDENCE — Little Marquel M. Davis beamed a wide smile in a photo shown at the trial of his alleged killer.

    Troy Figgs, the man accused of pimping Marquel’s mother and murdering the 2-year-old boy, sat stone-faced yesterday in the courtroom of Superior Court Judge Robert Krause.

    Figgs, 21, of 9 Erastus St., is charged with murder, conspiracy and pandering. His friend and roommate, Akeem King, 21, was convicted last fall of second-degree murder and sentenced to 60 years in prison, with 40 to serve.

    Many details at link:

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ A man stopped his trial by pleading guilty Monday to second-degree murder for beating a 2-year-old boy to death. Troy Figgs, 21, was accused of killing Marquel Davis in 2005 while the boy's mother was away. Figgs' roommate, 21-year-old Akeem King, was convicted last year of second-degree murder and sentenced to 40 years in prison. Davis' mother was working as a prostitute for Figgs and left her son in his care so she could work in Boston.
