Murder Charge Filed Against Father In Baby’s Death

 

A Montgomery County man now faces a third degree murder charge in connection with his baby daughter’s death.

28-year-old Edward Doyle of Upper Moreland Township was charged earlier with endangering the welfare of a child in the Sunday morning death of his two-month-old daughter Makayla.

He initially said he fell on top of her after tripping over a baby swing in the living room of their Horsham Road apartment, but a report by the coroner’s office says the child’s injuries did not corroborate his story.

District Attorney Risa Ferman says he punched her in the nose during a drunken rage and tried to cover up his crime with lies.

He lived with his wife, Nicole Lavelle, and Makayla and their 15-month-old daughter Mackenzie.  He told police he had been out drinking with a friend for about three hours, consuming six pints of beer before returning to the apartment.

He’s being held without bail at Montgomery County Prison.
