Virginia man indicted in 2019 death of infant child

VIRGINIA BEACH (AP) A Virginia man has been charged with murder in the death of his infant child nearly two years ago, police said.

Virginia Beach police announced in a news release Oct. 26 that La’Shaun Quintae Holloway, 23, was indicted last week by a grand jury on charges of second-degree murder and felony child neglect. An investigation showed Holloway “engaged in actions that caused the death of his infant child,” police said.

The charges stem from an incident Dec. 20, 2019, when police responded to Woodcock Lane in Virginia Beach for an infant who was found unresponsive. The infant later died, police said.

Holloway was served while he was in the Chesapeake City Jail, where he was already in custody on unrelated charges, according to police.
