Murder charge in infant death

WAYNE COUNTY

Doctors at the Wayne Memorial Hospital emergency room notified authorities of the death of Kamari Bryant on October 25.

Officials said the boy's mother - Donnisha Bryant - brought the child to the ER because he was non-responsive.

Detectives said an autopsy by the Greenville Medical Examiner's Office shows the child died of a trauma to his body.

Now, Bryant's boyfriend - 37-year-old Keefe Decarlos McPhail - is charged with one count of murder.

"No matter what the outcome of the investigation, this is still a terrible tragedy. It is not only emotional and stressful to the family members, but it was also stressful and emotional to the detectives working this type of case. I appreciate everyone - officers and citizens - that assisted in this investigation," said Sheriff C. A. Winders in a statement.

McPhail is in the Wayne County Detention Center without bond.
