JACKSON, Tenn. — A 25-year-old man was arrested Monday for the death of a 7-month-old baby.

Westlee Waylon Yates is charged with first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse.

The child’s mother called 9-1-1 Friday, saying her son was unresponsive. He was taken to Camden General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Yates, the mother’s boyfriend, was taken into custody without incident at a residence in Humphreys County.

He is being held without bond in Benton County.

    Why do these stupid winches keep allowing the boyfriend of the month to be alone with their babies? It happens all the time….they barely know these thugs, yet…they trust their child with them. I hope she feels like the POS she is also. Your.
    job as a mother is to protect your child….not hand them over to a killer.

      WEll said. Happens way to much. See how quiet it is when this particular ethncity is involved? I dont see a thousand comments condemning every pale face for what this dude is accussed of. Pale face hypocrisy you gotta love it. Lol

      Oh dear pale face! We know this guy is indicative of your sub hunan ethncity. The most vile acts aganist childern are historically committed by pale faces. From infecting native American kids with smallpox, raping and murder if central and south Americans,transatlantic slave trade,chinese opium wars and to many atrocities to list proves there is a genetic pre dispistion to horrific crimes against childern. Extreme caution is warranted

    In response to the comment by Big Bertha, I’ll bet you think you aren’t a racist, right? When you call others of a different race names and sterotype that is exactly what you are. Not all WHITES are red necks just like all BLACKS are not thugs.

    I also don’t agree with your nasty little comments about, and I copied and pasted it for accuracy “All of father and grand father test the girls out in the family”. Do you honestly think that all WHITES molest their daughters?

    These statements of your Big Bertha are one of reasons racism is alive and well in this country.

      dona, racism was invented and mastered by the whites. Now, you wanna cry like a pansy when the folks you oppressed turn it back in your face. When we have established a wealthy nation off your free work as you did us then you can call us racist. The arrogance and hypocrisy of you pale faces knows no bounds. Anyone, who leaves a child in the care of you things is crazy. These guys went into multiple resturants yelling racial slurs and you say the ppl were wrong to kick the butt and bigbertha wrong for stating a proven historical fact. You see very few negros on any Discovery ID or similar program because it is mostly showcasing the depravity of your sub human brethren, 10% nehandrahl DNA and the same hair texture as dogs and cats proves you are not fully human. My son knows not to bring a dog in my house hence my banning of all pale faces over 12 in my home. That’s the age your animal instincts manifest

        Very interesting and thought provacating commit. However you are wrong about 10% Neanderthal DNA, It is closer to 3%. This still validate your commit.

    Why wasn’t the mother taken into custody as well? Mothers need to be held accountable when they allow these guys around their children.

    I know this man personally, and I know 110% he didn’t do this, there is NO WAY, and no the mother was NOT arrested she SHOULD have been but was not. This man provided for the child with the baby having an absentee father, all he EVER wanted in life was to be a great father, a thousand times better than the one he had unfortunately for him his type is damsel in distress; this girl clearly (to those who know them) had a HUGE role in it but it is a very small town minded police force and they really don’t care about who is innocent and who is guilty just the publicity it exhibits. It breaks my heart to see what he and his family are going through. He has my husband’s and mine support the whole 9 yards. Never ever ever have I seen someone so caring and compassionate with small children, I saw him once rock a 3 month old for over 2 HOURS without his patience ever really wavering while the mom was out with “friends” he hates to see small children with overly wet diapers or even scrapes or boo boos. The man never wants anything more than for children to be happy no matter the cost to himself. I have faith this will be worked out soon and everyone will see that it is either the fiance or the biological father one but that he is completely innocent. It’s a shame his life is forever stained by this accusation reinforced by a bad police force that is already ALL OVER the news the last few years for their incompetence.

    it is comical the pale face wildebeest blames negros for the hatred of the whites. When, I have enslaved you 400yrs, Beat raped your mother father and son and daughter. Stolen your land and heritage planted guns and drugs in your community underfunded your schools from your own tax dollars Lied on God by calling him white committed genocide against all the whites of the world as you have the brown,black, and yellow man then and only then you can call me racist. The white skin is a curse and you things are truly the children of Satan and I will despise you and your wickedness until my last breath am one proud negro and I will never trust you edomite satanic devils these guys went to multiple resturants yelling racial and you think that is ok? the power of life and death is in the tongue and they got what they asked for
