When the mother to Aaliyah Lewis, a two-year-old toddler, had to ask her boyfriend to babysit her because her father was unavailable, she never expected that it would end with her losing her daughter.
21-year-old Jamarius Devonti Graham was put in ch@r’ge of Aaliyah while her mother was away. When the young toddler understandably had an @ccident and soiled the bed, Graham sn@pped and sp@nked her twenty times before taking a plastic hanger and be@ti’ng her with it until it broke.
Graham proceeded to assure Aaliyah’s mother, who remains unnamed, that he hadn’t struck her very hard. But her mother noticed w0u’nds on her daughter’s body and that she was experiencing breathing difficulties.
However, the fe@r of Aaliyah being taken away from her stopped her from immediately phoning for help. It took 90 minutes before Aaliyah’s mother called for help, and by that time, it had been too long. Aaliyah was pronounced de@d at UF Health Jacksonville shortly after her arrival.
She had suffered from multiple tr@um’as to her head, torso, and limbs, and there was fluid in her lungs and brain that caused swelling. She was also covered in bru!s’es and lac’er@ti’ons.
The cause of Aaliyah’s de@th has not been confirmed, although doctors speculate that the be@tin’gs made her body go into sh’oc’k and need immediate medical treatment.
As a result, it is likely that she passed away due to a combination of the physical in’jur’ies from Graham and her mother’s subsequent neglect to get her to a hospital as soon as possible.
Graham has p!’ed gu!l’ty for his cr!m’es and faces a j’a’!l sentence of thirty years. He will go on tr!al in April.
