Now, a judge who heard evidence last month against Wood said it was clear that La’Rayah suffered before she died and that Wood and Amy Taylor were responsible for her death.

The judge cited photos of numerous external bruises from what were described as finger-pokes to the girl’s abdomen, back, arms and legs. Autopsy findings showed La’Rayah had 20 newly broken ribs, internal bleeding, a lacerated liver and bruises to her heart, diaphragm and connective tissue.

Taylor told police she sat on the girl while disciplining her about a week before her death, according to court documents.

If you recall, reports stated that La’Rayah Davis was found lifeless on April 9 in Wood’s apartment some two weeks after Amy Taylor, 26, and the little girl had moved in with him.
