Kamaire Wash died of blunt force trauma.
Wash and his live-in girlfriend, Lasherae Davis, were each charged with two counts of cruelty to children in the first degree, cruelty to children in the third degree, making false statements and concealing the death of another.
The murder charge was added later and Kamaire’s mother, Kashira Pettigrew, told Channel 2 she thinks Davis should also be charged with murder.
“She is just as responsible as a mother, as a woman,” Pettigrew said.
Both Michael Wash and Davis are in jail awaiting trial.
