ERIE, Pa. — A man irate that the family dog defecated on the floor kicked the animal to its death, then killed his 5-month-old daughter by shaking her when she cried, police said.
Vincent Davis, 24, of Erie, was charged Friday with homicide in the death of Savonnia Davis.
He also was charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, endangering the welfare of a child and cruelty to animals.
Police said Davis initially told them the girl slipped from his hands as he was changing her diaper. He later admitted shaking her, police said.
Savonnia died at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh on Thursday, two days after she was shaken.
Doctors and a forensic pathologist said she had broken ribs, fluid on the brain, and cuts and bruises.
Police found the dog’s body in a trash bag on Davis’ girlfriend’s porch.
Davis was being held without bail.
Police did not know whether he had an attorney and the jail had no record of his representation.
