Another toddler was murdered over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Devon Sawyer, the stepfather of Michael Weeks, 2, was arrested for his murder. Michael Weeks suffered cardiac arrest and had bruises on his chest and thighs, according to the AJC.
The child’s mother, Danielle Calhoun, had left him in her husband’s care when she went shopping. Devon Sawyer initially told police he and the boy had taken a nap and when he woke up he found Michael unresponsive.
The AJC reports, on Tuesday morning, Calhoun told Channel 2 that an autopsy revealed her son had been abused.
