Paterson man, woman charged in death of 16-month-old baby


A city man and woman have been arrested in the death of a 16-month old baby, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Police arrested James Davis, 49, and Qunasia Coleman, 29, in connection with the November 7 fatality at a residential dwelling in the vicinity of Carroll Street.

Davis has been charged with first-degree felony murder, aggravated sexual assault, and second-degree endangering the welfare of a child.

Coleman has been charged with second-degree endangering the welfare of a child.

Police were called to the dwelling on report of an unresponsive child on November 7 at around 5:30 p.m. An ambulance transported the child to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center. The baby was pronounced dead at 6:07 p.m.

Detectives determined the child sustained multiple injuries about the body. Police said Davis was identified as the person present with the child during the incident. Coleman, the child’s mother, left the residence leaving the child in Davis’s care, authorities said.

Davis faces life in prison if convicted. Coleman could face a maximum of 10 years in state prison.

    How do people become so devolved and degenerate? How do they become so separated from the norms of civilization? How do they remain so disconnected from the world at large that they find themselves committing such heinous and gruesome acts? This neighborhood is not large. And the city is full of smart, caring hardworking people from within and without its borders. Surrounded by some of the plushiest, best educated suburbs in the country. Can we bring no light here?

    I am sure this Liberal state mentality will use his race and economical status as a way to give them barely any jail time. Remember it sholdnt matter.what race or how little money you have to feel pity or sorrow for them. In my town if police find u pissing you probably get locked up, in Paterson even if you commit a felony many times police just let it be and nothing happens
    *****LAW AND ORDER*****
