ELYRIA —  A Lorain man accused of killing an 8-month-old baby boy in June has been indicted again by a county grand jury on an unrelated escape charge for failing to report to his probation officer.

Kevin Kimbrough, 24, could face the death penalty if convicted of aggravated murder in the death of Jayden Davidson, whom he was baby-sitting.

He also is facing child endangering charges for allegedly abusing Jayden’s 2-year-old brother.
County Prosecutor Dennis Will said the escape case was “already in the pipeline” when Jayden died from severe head and brain injuries.

Kimbrough was placed on probation by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction in February after his release from prison on a two-year sentence for failure to comply, receiving stolen property and obstructing official business.

Will said after Kimbrough failed to report in April, the process to indict him for escape began moving forward.Kimbrough remains in the county jail.
