Prosecutor files murder charge against Jefferson City caregiver

It’s a new second degree murder charge for the Jefferson City woman who had a four-year-old boy die in her care.

Prosecutors added that charge on Tuesday against Quatavia Givens. She was babysitting Darnell Gray when he went missing about a year ago. The boy’s body was found about a week later. Investigators say Givens later admitted she hit the boy.

Givens got out of jail on a reduced bond in early October on the charge of felony child abuse resulting in death. Her trial is set for July 13, 2020.
