Premeditated homicide charge added in infant abuse case


A new charge of first degree premeditated homicide has been added against Keyshawn Wanya Bailey, 26, who was arrested Tuesday on a charge of aggravated child abuse against a baby he was watching.

Bailey called 911 around noon Tuesday, saying that he found the 7-month-old baby choking. When Gainesville Police Department (GPD) arrived, they observed a large hematoma on the back of the baby’s head and also saw a blanket with a brown stain that appeared to be blood. Bailey reportedly told officers that the blood belonged to the baby.

The baby was transported to Shands Pediatric ER, and a CT scan showed subdural hematomas on both sides of the head, a fractured skull, and brain swelling. Medical staff advised GPD that the baby is not likely to survive the injuries and that the injuries could only have been caused by blunt force to the baby’s head.

The baby’s mother was at work when Bailey called 911, and she told GPD that after she left for work, less than an hour before Bailey called 911, only Bailey, the baby, and a 3-year-old were in the residence.

The baby’s mother also showed GPD a photo of the baby with injuries to his nose, discoloration under his left eye, and scratches on his face, sent to her by Bailey on Friday, November 19, while she was at work. She showed GPD texts from Bailey, sent November 19, allegedly saying that the baby kept cutting himself; Bailey blamed something in the bassinet. Bailey also told her to cancel their weekend plans because “I’m tired of this baby.” The baby’s mother told officers that the baby had no other injuries besides the cut on his nose when she left for work yesterday morning, and she had no explanation for the new injury to his head.

Post Miranda, Bailey reportedly denied knowing anything about how the baby’s injuries occurred, saying he found the baby in his bassinet, choking on a white fluid. He later reportedly admitted to dropping the baby twice, once on Friday and once today, but he denied that dropping the baby caused the injuries in the photo he sent the baby’s mother. According to the arrest report, Bailey eventually admitted to causing the cut on the baby’s nose, saying he was play fighting and accidentally punched the baby with his knuckle, causing it to split and bleed. Bailey later reportedly admitted that he intentionally jabbed the baby in the face with his fist out of frustration, causing the injuries in the photo. He continued to say that he did not intentionally injure the baby on the day of the 911 call but did drop him.

Bailey’s relationship to the baby is redacted on the arrest report. He is being held on $1,000,000 bail on the child abuse charge and $5,000,000 on the homicide charge.

  • This is so sad and tragic. That poor little baby…. And I’m sure that the toddler has been abused by this monster as well.
    I’m thankful, and pleasantly surprised, that we seen to have appropriate bond setting guidelines and fairly reasonable sentencing guidelines in our area.
    I guess George Soros hasn’t paid enough to destroy our local criminal justice system yet…
    After Waukesha, it is eye-opening to see how bad things could be…
    This mom obviously failed to watch out for her kids. After the first injury to get baby, that guy should never have been allowed to be a caregiver for a vulnerable infant and toddler.
    Is losing her baby to a heartless child killer enough punishment, and enough of a deterrent? Will she take better care of her toddler now? I sure hope so…

    • Do you know the family? Don’t you think the Mom is kicking herself in the behind? She definitely doesn’t need to read put downs from a Karen who has no idea if the monster is the child’s father. Women need to support each other and help straightening crowns instead of knocking it off.

      • Maybe there needs to be a mandate by Brandon that
        You have to get a permit first & have the means to be able to support &
        Care for & educate a child before you can conceive one…maybe that would stop tragedies like this one…
        Brandon’s mandating the jab, he can mandate that…
        My body, my choice…ha.

        • That will never happen…abortion is big biz and
          They need stem cells to make the Vax.

      • I assume you are referring to me…
        I do not know the family. I have no idea if the mom is kicking herself. (She sure should be. If she isn’t, her toddler needs to be raised by someone else.)
        Women can support each other by encouraging one another to do what is right, and make the difficult, but good decisions for themselves and their children.
        This tragic case seems to be yet another example of of severe cultural dysfunction that needs to be turned around somehow.
        I think another reader, who probably could not be called a “Karen” by anyone, put it pretty well in her comment below…

        Children is my world
        I haven’t ate since hearing this how could the mother not know what was being done to her baby a cut on his nose how do a 7 month old do that im sure from the punches to his face showed some kinda of swelling. If the blows was hard enough to split his skin im sure after days of being dropped he showed signs of being distraught i hate weak ass hoes who listen to whatever a man tell them i hate weak ass hoes who doesn’t pay attention. Less observant when it come to their kids that baby couldn’t talk he look to his mother to take care of him in protect him. In use her a instincts in she failed him she should go to jail for child neglect

        • First off you do not know what’s going on because if it was your child it will be something different and second you can’t always believe what these site or the news people say.. because you wasnt the only God and him knows so mind your business..good day ☺️

  • This scumbag should be put away for good. I wonder if even the mother knows who the father is? Bad choices all around led to this baby’s death. I wonder what kind of record this guy had? Should he have been in jail?

  • Why is a bond even on the table wtf is wrong with people the bigger crime is giving a guilty upfront person a bond his freedom was revoked when he decided to do that to a baby to anyone

    • You have a strong point there…
      Emotionally, I want to agree with you. The monster who killed that baby should never see the light of day again, and it sure looks like he is the one who did that to the poor baby…
      I have to remind myself that it is good that we have a longstanding criminal justice system that operates on the presumption of innocence until proven guilty, and that posting appropriate bond tries to balance that with protecting society.
      Hopefully, this guy won’t be able to post a $6,000,000.00 bond. I doubt his family and friends are rushing to support him by coming up with that kind of money. (Hopefully, Soros won’t…) I’m so glad he doesn’t have a ridiculously low bond to make…
      And, hopefully, after a fair trial, he will be sentenced appropriately, made to pay his penalty to society and never have contact with a child ever again…

      • 🙄 he has me and if my cousin need it I have it….sheesh worry about the wrong thing

      • Yes he got support til end and hope u dont end up in this situation critic!!!

  • Excuse my language in my first post I was in foster care I know what it feels like to be hurt as a child and no one there to help you you don’t know who to tell and you don’t know who to talk to im trying to start a non profit business for children and mothers because of this very reason this has been bothering me so heavily these last couple of days I have almost broke down this is the second death this year of a child that I know of in Gainesville the first one hitting close to home Delia Young will never be forgotten and I will see to that I blame these monsters for what they did as well as I blame the people who allow these things to happen if they would have opened their eyes and follow their instincts and evaluated the evidence this baby life could have been saved had the mother open her eyes warning comes before destruction it is so important not to be nonchalant about what’s happening around you cuz once it’s done you can’t go back and undo these kids didn’t ask to be here nobody cares cuz it’s not their kids but these kids are our future should know that this baby suffer for days to be punched in the face I can’t even imagine what what’s going through that baby’s mine why is this happening to me to think about that thought makes me sick I’m try so hard to keep my sanity this is happening too frequently if you had better supervision better instincts kids would be alive today if I came home from work and my baby had a cut on their nose at 7 months that person would have never watch my baby again
