Creighton Man Faces June Trial In Son’s Death

A Creighton, Nebraska man who is being charged with manslaughter in connection to the death of his infant son is scheduled for a June jury trial.

Knox County States Attorney John Thomas says that 29-year-old Edward Davis appeared earlier this week in Knox County District Court for a pre-trial conference. Davis waived his right to a speedy trial. His pre-trial conference trial is continued to May 31st, with his jury trial continued to June 21st.

Davis was arrested back in December in Texas and transported by Knox County authorities back to Nebraska.

According to court documents, on Jan. 13th of 2021, first responders were sent to a Creighton residence for reports of an infant that was unresponsive. When EMTs arrived at the scene, they started providing aid to Ender, before transporting him to a local hospital. Court documents state Ender was pronounced dead later that day at Avera Creighton Hospital.

Davis remains in the Knox County jail on a bond of a half-million dollars.
