State Agency Settles Child Death Law Suit

KSAL StaffJuly 14, 2016

Court records show that a Kansas agency has reached a settlement in a federal lawsuit over the case of a 4-year-old boy fatally beaten by his father in 2013.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the Kansas Department for Children and Families has reached the deal with the Naomi Boone, mother of the late Mekhi Boone.

The settlement’s terms weren’t disclosed. The deal must be approved by the State Finance Council, comprised of legislative leaders and the governor.

The boy’s father, Lee Davis, is serving nearly 20 years for second-degree murder.

Naomi Boone has contended the boy shouldn’t have been placed with his father, and that one of the state’s foster care contractors placed the child with Davis while aware that he had a history of domestic violence.
