Investigators say that on September 20, 2019 first responders were called out to an apartment on Grote St. in Buffalo for a call of an infant unresponsive. When they got there, 6-month-old King Jordan was not breathing.
The baby was take to Oishei Children’s Hospital where he died two days later. The D.A.’s office says Jordan shook the infant causing injuries to the baby King’s head and neck, which ultimately led to the child’s death.
Buffalo Police said that after an autopsy report, the child’s death was ruled a homicide. BPD had originally interviewed several suspects immediately following the child’s dead in September 2019, but Jordan’s arrest is the first of the case.
Jordan is expected to be back in court March 19 for a felony hearing. Until then, he is being held without bail. If convicted, Jordan faces 25 years to life in prison.
