Recently in Hazelwood, Marquicio Johnson was charged with first degree murder and child endangerment after allegedly burning and beating 2-year-old Orionis Barron Taylor. Johnson was supposed to be babysitting the child while his mother was working to support the two. The child was taken to the hospital by Johnson but was beaten and burned so badly that he died after a few days of slipping in and out of a coma. St. Louis County prosecutors said that the charges may be upgraded due to the atrocious nature of the crime.
