St. Petersburg man charged in beating death of 2-year-old boy

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. A man was denied bond Thursday on charges he fatally beat his girlfriend's 2-year-old son.

Jordan Dibert-Monk died Wednesday after being brought to the hospital the day before with injuries to his head and eyes and bruises on his arms, legs and forehead, an arrest report said.

Kevin Daniel White, 21, the boyfriend of Jordan's mother, was charged Tuesday with aggravated child abuse. The charge was upgraded to first-degree murder after the child's death.

White, who had been seeing Jordan's mother for about a month, has denied beating the child. He claimed Jordan hurt himself by falling over backward and hitting his head.

White was being represented by the public defender's office.

How do you get eye and forehead injuries from falling over backwards?

I know my daughter had bruises all of the time, all over the place, from as active of a toddler as she was - so if she were to have been in an accident of this magnitude, it's possible it might look like something else happened due to the bruising - but I'd think the doctors could tell if an injury was days older, or from something besides abuse.

OK...shouldn't the mom be held responsible, too? They'd only been dating a month - that is NOT long enough to leave her child with him unsupervised!

That's not even long enough for her to have even introduced her to the kid, much less left him alone together.

Kevin Daniel White
Offense: 1st Degree Murder

I find no further court documentation after this appeal. At this time sentence is still life.

Thread: Most interesting classic unsolved murder cases

This thread currently has over 350 cases with a brief synopsis of each and we are still adding additional cases.

You can access a spreadsheet that lists the cases in alphabetical order with the page & post number so that you can locate a particular case you may be interested in. It also contains links to any cases that already have a thread on WS.

Many cases do not have a thread. Please feel free to start one in the appropriate forum if you would like to look into one. Should you start a thread on one of these cases, please let me know so that I can add the link to the spreadsheet.

Here is the link for the spreadsheet in alphabetical order:
