RIP Maleah. This story is heartbreaking. The only justice is street justice. I hope both Mama and her boyfriend get it in jail. Their lives serve no purpose after this.
From the video posted above
- mom did know about the abuse and willfully covered it up
- the stepdad had a female mistress in addition to male one
- the step dad said that the mom was never home and they often argued about what kinda mother she was. He said he was the primary parent
- the stepdad is on a hunger strike (who cares ) and has been getting death threats from the other inmates
All these child abusers seem to be pro-life. You could’ve taken plan B or terminated the pregnancy if you hated kids
I recognize the area these people live in. There’s a lot of poverty. The nearest abortion clinic is 2.5 hours away and it’s the only one in the state. I don’t think plan b is covered by Medicaid and Sex Ed is not taught in our state. A lot of grown women are still not sure about the whys and how’s of pregnancy.All these child abusers seem to be pro-life. You could’ve taken plan B or terminated the pregnancy if you hated kids
He better do all 40 of those years.
Maleah Davis update: Derion Vence pleads guilty, sentenced to 40 years in prison, officials sayHOUSTON –
Derion Vence pleaded guilty Thursday to tampering with a corpse and injury to a child -- 4-year-old Maleah Davis -- and was sentenced to 40 years in prison, officials say.
Vence, 28, dated Maleah’s mother, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg’s Office said in a news release with an update about the case. Vence, Maleah and her little brother were all reported missing the morning of May 4, 2019. When Vence and Maleah’s brother showed up at a hospital late that night, Maleah was not with them. Her remains were found by the side of a road in Arkansas a month after she disappeared.
Maleah was being watched by Vence because her mother was out of state on a trip. Vence eventually told police he had been attacked by unknown men a day earlier while on his way to the airport to pick up the mother along with Maleah and his son. He said that when he woke up after the attack, Maleah was missing.
Officials said his story did not match up with surveillance video which showed his departure from the apartment with only his son. Ogg’s office noted that additional video review showed him leaving his apartment with a full garbage bag in a laundry basket.
Intentional injury to a child which causes serious injury by act or omission is a first degree felony. He was sentenced to 40 years for intentional injury to a child and 20 years for tampering with a corpse. Vence will serve the sentences concurrently.
The Houston Police Department Homicide Division investigated the case. It was prosecuted by the Harris County District Attorney’s Office Major Offenders Division.
“Children are the most vulnerable members of our community and young Maleah’s death is tragic,” Ogg is quoted as saying in a news release. “We may never have all the answers in this case and our thoughts are with her family.”
