    TX - David Graves, 5 mos, beaten to death, San Antonio, 18 Dec 2005

    SAN ANTONIO -- A 25-year-old San Antonio woman has been charged in the death of her infant son.



    Devon Arlene Vega was charged with capital murder in the death of 5-month-old David Lee Graves IV. He died less than two weeks after caseworkers began investigating her for a second time on suspicion of neglect.



    Vega is being held in the Bexar (BEHR) County Jail without bond.



    Investigators said she admitted Tuesday to beating the child the night before he died. An arrest affidavit said Vega admitted she dropped him several times, shook him, threw him to the floor and struck him with her fist.



    David was found dead in the living room Sunday morning. At the time, Vega told police that he'd jumped from her arms the night before and landed face-first on a rocky sidewalk.

    I hesitated to post as it invokes so much anger in me. But, yes she does deserve the death penalty. That is her rage against someone who has nothing to do with it. Even claiming mental disability....it is far beyond. She isn't an Andrea Yates where everyone around knew including the doctors and the system failed. This is someone who acted on their own.

    This is becoming sickening because it seems to be in the news daily. Here's another one that made me boil!!!! If they're not killing their own, they're leaving their poor defenseless babies with boyfriends/girlfriends. I just don't get how women can be so careless and uncaring about who watches their babies.

    Exactly! Obviously Family Services didn't do their part, either!
