SAN ANTONIO – A bond reduction hearing was held for Christopher Davila, who is facing charges in connection to the January death of King Jay Davila, an 8-month-old child.
During the hearing, King Jay’s mother, Jasmine Gonzales also made it known that Davila was not King Jay’s father.
Davila’s bail is currently set at $1.25 million and his lawyer, Robert Behrens, argued at the hearing that the bond was set too high spreading the blame to the “excessive news coverage by the media” along with the chief of police and the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office.
Magistrate Judge Andrew Carruthers denied the bond reduction request by Davila and Behrens.
Davila has several charges stacked against him in this case including causing serious bodily injury to a child and tampering with evidence by concealing a human corpse.
It is believed by authorities that the baby died on January 4 which is the same day that Davila, his mother, and his cousin allegedly staged King Jay’s gas station kidnapping.
It was ruled in February by the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office that the 8-month-old’s death was a homicide caused by blunt force injuries.
