Fayetteville man faces murder charge in toddler's death

Posted October 15, 2012

Fayetteville police arrested a man Monday on a charge of first-degree murder in connection with the death last week of a 23-month-old toddler.

Jabrenne-Keirre Kayshon Carter, 20, of the 5800 block of Aftonshire Drive, was also charged with felony child abuse in the death of Tylee Fields.

The child was taken to a local hospital on Oct. 7 and died of his injuries two days later.

Police said that a medical examiner's report found that the injuries occurred while in Carter's care.

Carter lived with the child's mother, police said, but he is not related to the child.

    This is the real biological father of Tylee. I just want people thats saying a mother with a fatherless child is not the case. I did what I needed and had to do for my baby. But I am from Warrenton, Nc which is 3hrs from fayetteville. She wouldnt let me get him. I paid child support and wanted quality and couldnt get it. Had my baby live and well in June I started a 8hr. job w/benefits for him and 4mons later he dies in my arm. So people get your facts straight (in a calm voice). Thanks

    Agreed! It doesn't help that people have no respect for human life anymore.

    I have two young daughters and I would NEVER have a man besides their father care for them...this is so sad.

    These girls having babies without fathers and then hooking up with another man and letting him care for her baby is crazy. Why would the mother place the child in his care. Just so very sad that an innocent child is dead because the adults who were responsible for care and love have failed him.
