Man Arrested For Beaten His Girlfriend’s 5-Year-Old Blind Son To Death

A man identified as Yoshuah Dallas, 24, has been arrested for beating his girlfriend’s blind son to death in St. Louis, Missouri.

According to reports, the incident occurred last Tuesday, while the victim’s mother, Aunyae, was in the hospital giving birth to her third child.

It was gathered that the girlfriend left her blind son, Jamarion Delancy, 5, and her 7-year-old daughter, Micaiah, in the care of Dallas at their apartment.

The boy was blind and also had learning disabilities, but that did not stop Dallas from abusing him.

The suspect reportedly brought Delancy to the hospital a day after the violent attack, where he later died from his injuries.

Speaking about the sad incident, St. Louis County Police Association noted that the young Delancy wore leg braces and had no way to defend himself against the suspect’s attack.

According to the association, the victim suffered blunt force trauma to the abdomen, a lacerated liver, and a broken rib.

“We feel for Aunyae at this incredibly difficult time where she has to bring a baby home from the hospital, while planning her son’s funeral and also trying to care for (the sister) who was in the apartment when this horrible act occurred — all with extremely limited resources,” the association said.

Meanwhile, Dallas has been charged with a Class A felony for abuse or neglect of a child resulting in death and possession of a firearm.

The suspect is being held in the St. Louis County Justice Center on a $250,000.00 cash-only bond.

Also, Reports have it that Delancy’s case is tough for the police force as the mum’s poverty situation has forced the police department to task themselves and raise money for his burial expenses.

“Unfortunately detectives who handle these types of crimes see this level of violence on a daily basis.

 “But when it involves a child who is blind, developmentally disabled and can only walk using braces, it was extremely devastating for these detectives.” Joe Patterson, a retired detective who’s the executive director of the association told the Post-Dispatch.

The St Louis County Police Association has launched a GoFundMe campaign for the ‘victim,’ which at the time of this report has raised more than $28,000 of its $30,000 goal.

The campaign’s description;

 “Jamarion’s death has left an impact on the members of the St. Louis County Police Department and we feel compelled to do more, especially at a time of year when families typically gather and celebrate the holidays,”.
