More details are emerging in the grisly murder of 17-month-old Jireh Jahsean Gayles, who was killed on Tuesday at his mother’s Newport News apartment. According to an affidavit, he had “several overlapping, human bite marks on his upper torso to include the stomach, chest and diaphragm area, as well as his legs and back.”
The toddler also had wounds which appeared to have been sustained from a “clamping device with teeth.”
On Thursday, Newport News police arrested Darius Brown, 22, and charged him with the murder of his girlfriend’s 17-month-old son. He was watching the little boy while his mother was at work.
According to the arrest warrant, Brown called 911 and when officers arrived at the Aqua Vista Apartments, they found the child ”lying face up on the bed, unresponsive, cold to the touch and had no pulse.”
Brown told police that the child became “unsteady on his feet, falling asleep and not being able to stay awake.”
Police said there were obvious injuries on the boy’s tiny body. The cause of death is listed as head trauma and blunt force abdominal trauma.
While court documents indicate Brown refused to answer the officer’s question, as to when he last saw the child, the following disturbing events were recorded in the report: [Brown] “had taken videos of the child…showing how the child had been acting and was insistent that Officer T.E. Byers review them. Officer T.E. Byers observed the videos depicting the child, J.G. 01-29-2009 unsteady on his feet and falling to the ground. Officer T.E. Byers continued watching the videos and the condition of child, J.G. 01-29-2009 to worsen with each video.”
The video, was taken on Brown’s cell phone.
The boy’s 5-year-old sister was also home at the time, and told police she saw “Darius punch, kick and bite Jireh.” The girl was unhurt.
Brown is being held in the Newport News City Jail on one count of murder and four counts of malicious assault.
