UPDATE: Murder Charges Filed

Charges are upgraded in the death of a 4-year-old girl in Jackson County. A grand jury returned an indictment against Eric Davis, 23, Monday saying he beat his daughter Erica to death.

Little Erica died after she was found injured at the Qualla Motel in Whittier on October 11th. The girl suffered four broken ribs, a broken arm, and severe head trauma.

Search warrants list several items taken from the hotel room by investigators. Among the things seized were knives, various coat hangers and a paper towel with a reddish stain. Also listed in the court documents was a chain located on one of the beds.

Along with murder, Eric Davis is also charged with two counts of felony child abuse.
