Marion – Devin O’Daniell, the Marion man accused of beating his 3-month old son to death in November is being charged with first-degree murder. A release from Williamson Co. State’s Attorney Brandon Zanoitti states that his office is still awaiting medical records from St. Louis and that other charges will be considered. O’Daniell was arrested on November 23rd after officers received a call to a home on Meadowland Parkway from a mother saying her child had been abused. When police arrived the mother had already taken the child to Heartland Regional Medical Center, but O’Daniell was found not far from the home and arrested. The child, Claude Aleczander Tobias O’Daniell, passed away at Cardinal-Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis days later. O’Daniell is being held on $1 million bond.
