Man 31, Beat Girlfriend's 8 Month Old Son To Death Arrested For Murder
Man, 31, charged with beating his girlfriend's 8-month-old son to death and 'biting off the infant's nipples'. Sylvester Knighten Jr, 31, is accused of beating to death the eight-month-old son of his girlfriend, Danesha Cannamore, 31. Police responded to a call about an unresponsive infant made from the couple's home in Florissant, Missouri, around 11am on Wednesday. The baby was rushed to a local hospital, where he passed away. Authorities say the infant had been repeatedly struck and bitten, and that his nipples had been bitten off. Knighten was charged with abuse or neglect of a child resulting in death, abuse of a child with a serious physical injury and four additional counts of child abuse. Cannamore was charged with two counts of child endangerment, but police don't believe she physically abused the baby.
