MAN INDICTED FOR CAPITAL MURDER OF A BABY

BAAACRXGOn Thursday, March 20, 2014 and after a very extensive and in depth investigation by Sgt. Investigators Josh Cummins and Stephen Clappart of the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department, a Liberty County Grand Jury returned an indictment of “Capital Murder of a person under 10 years of age” on Brian Christopher Keith age 29 of the Hardin, Texas area. The Grand Jury indictment was served earlier this morning on Keith, who was already in the Liberty County jail on other charges.

On July 2, 2013, four (4) week old Nevaeh (“ Heaven” spelled backwards) Keith was found non-responsive and later pronounced deceased, in her bed at her home on CR 2061 in Liberty County. During the initial investigation it was found that Brian Keith had been released from prison nine (9) days earlier and was on parole for an arson conviction when his wife, Shanna Keith, gave birth to little Nevaeh Keith. It is alleged that Brian Keith fostered a great deal of resentment towards the baby because it was not his child.

During the early stage of the death investigation, Keith admitted to Investigators that he had gotten up at 4:am on the morning of July 2nd to go to work and little Nevaeh was crying. He admitted to “patting the child on the head and maybe striking the baby” before leaving for work while his wife was still asleep. Around 11:am that same morning, CPS workers came to the home to take Shanna Keith to a treatment facility when the baby was found to be non-responsive and 911 was then called.

The autopsy results indicated the baby died by “Compression Death” which is, in effect, death due to a blunt trauma to the body.

Within a few days of little Nevaeh’s death, Brian Keith was arrested for a “road rage” incident and placed in the county jail on an Assault charge. He was later released on probation for this offense but was re-arrested on a probation violation and was in the Liberty County jail for this offense when Investigators filed a Capital Murder charge on him for the death of baby Nevaeh. Brian Keith was still in the county jail when Sgt. Clappart and Sgt. Cummins served him with the Grand Jury Murder Indictment this morning.

The charges for this offense was filed in Judge Mark Morefield’s 75th. District Court and no bond is being set at this time.

Keith has a lengthy criminal background.

    “Around 11:am that same morning, CPS workers came to the home to take Shanna Keith to a treatment facility when the baby was found to be non-responsive and 911 was then called.”
    So what you’re saying is, the wife had a baby and she was addicted to drugs or alcohol. She didn’t get up before 11am to check on her child? It wasn’t until CPS showed up that she realized her child had passed away? Give me a break. She is just as guilty as he is. She knew something was wrong.
    Prayers for the sweet baby that didn’t have a chance.

    SOB needs to be torchered..Period!! He needs to live every day, for the rest of his life, being brutalized by another human being. This POS would be 6ft under if he had touched my kid. They need to remove his freaking hands since that what he used to kill that baby!!

    What a waste of flesh he was gave way to many chances and this could have been prevented the justice system should be held equally responsible as his wife/girlfriend she had to have known to danger she was putting this helpless angel nevaeh/heaven spelled backwards in. She handed this baby over to Satan willingly and God took her back.What a sick disgusting piece of human flesh
