According to court documents, on May 10, 2014, Davis called 911 and said his son, Zha-den Davis was not breathing. The infant was rushed to a hospital and died the next day. Document say the medical examiner ruled that the baby died of head trauma, and prosecutors allege that Davis shook the child.
