Murder charges have been filed against the boyfriend of a woman whose 2-year-old daughter was found beaten to death in his South Side home over the weekend, her body covered with bruises and what appeared to be human bite marks.
Devell M. Johnson, 23, of the 5500 block of South Emerald Avenue, is charged with first-degree murder, according to Tandra Simonton, spokeswoman for the Cook County state's attorney's office.
Armaney Cotton was found unresponsive Saturday afternoon at Johnson's home in the Englewood neighborhood, officials said. The girl's mother, Brittany Cotton, said it appeared "somebody tortured my child."
