Obstetrician faces murder charges after decapitating Georgia baby

The death of a newborn baby last year has been classified as a homicide, according to the child’s parents’ lawyers. The parents of Treveon Taylor Jr. sued a hospital in Georgia and the doctor who delivered the baby, claiming that the doctor did not perform a cesarean section on time and did not seek help quickly when the baby got stuck during delivery. The immediate cause of the baby’s death was a broken neck, and human action was to blame, according to the Clayton County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The family’s lawyer, Roderick Edmond, stated that the doctor applied excessive force to the baby’s head and neck, which is something that is clearly contraindicated. The hospital staff also did not inform the couple of the details of what happened and gave them false information about the cause of death. The hospital also discouraged the couple from doing an autopsy and encouraged them to cremate the baby.

St. Julian’s lawyers reject the conclusion that the baby’s neck injury occurred before death and claim that the separation of the head from the fetal body occurred post-mortem. The hospital where the baby was born, Southern Regional Medical Center, denied any negligence and stated that the baby died in utero, before delivery and decapitation.

Clayton County police are investigating the case, with the possibility of referring it to prosecutors. The department will not comment on the details of active cases. The case is still under investigation.
