Man acquitted after infant choked to death on lollipop

A jury has acquitted a Miami man who was charged with manslaughter after his 6-month-old baby son fatally choked on a lollipop.

Jurors agreed late last week with defense lawyers that the death of Jermaine Marcell Levy’s infant was accidental, and not the result of reckless behavior.

Levy, now 20, was arrested after police said he kidnapped his infant son, Jermaine Marcell Levy Jr., from the child’s mother, Warnisha Davis, in June 2018. Cops said he punched her in the mouth before taking the child, even though he had never cared for the baby on his own.
