Al-Lex Daniels, 10 months old MURDERED (beaten to death) allegedly by his mother's boyfriend, Lee Edwards,
age 23. This week (May 17, 2003), he was charged with capital felony which can bring him the death penalty as well as "murder,
injury to a child and first-degree assault". He is currently in custody in lieu of $2.5 million bail. Last month, Al-Lex's
sister was removed from the home she shared with her brother, her mother and her mother's boyfriend and placed in the custody
of her biological father and his mother. Unfortunately, Al-Lex wasn't removed as well or he would still be alive today. This
is not Edward's first run in with the law. He has other charges pending and he has a restraining order against him by another
woman. (Connecticut, USA)
