King’s father, Christopher Davila, 34, initially reported the baby was in an unlocked and running vehicle when it was stollen. He has since confessed to killing King Jay and led investigators to his body. Investigators found what appeared to be a baby’s body wrapped in a blanket and stuffed into a black backpack.
Davila, first charged with child endangerment, now faces felony injury to a child causing serious bodily injury – omission, felony possession of a firearm and possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance, and tampering with evidence.
King’s paternal grandmother, Beatrice Sampayo Davila, 65, and Angie Torres, 45, are also in custody, Torres was already imprisoned on unrelated charges. Both were charged with tampering with evidence.
