Stepfather indicted on 2nd-degree murder charge in Kilah Davenport case
UNION COUNTY, N.C. — Joshua Houser has been indicted by a grand jury on second-degree murder charges in Kilah Davenport’s death, WSOC reports.
In the beginning of September, the medical examiner determined the 4 year old died from pneumonia due to complications of remote blunt-force head injuries.
Her stepfather, Houser, is in prison after a jury convicted him of felony child abuse back in February.
Kilah was a victim of child abuse in 2012. She died earlier this year.
Kilah’s family told WSOC he should face more charges.
