A former Creighton man is facing two felony charges in connection to the death of his 4-month-old baby.
Deputy Knox County Attorney Samantha Holecek filed the charges against 29-year-old Edward Stephan Davis earlier this week. Davis is being held at the Brown County Jail in Brownwood, Texas, awaiting transport by the Knox County Sheriff’s Office back to Center.
Davis faces charges of child abuse resulting in death and manslaughter. Both charges carry a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.
According to the complaint filed by Holecek, Davis placed 4-month-old Ender Lee Davis in a situation that knowingly and intentionally endangered his life, cruelly confined or cruelly punished him, resulting in the infant’s death.
The charges are the result of an investigation by the Creighton Police Department surrounding the death of Ender Davis on January 13th of 2021.
Bond for Davis is set at 500,000 dollars.
