Teen arraigned on assault charges against 2-month-old daughter

A Buffalo teenager has been arraigned on an indictment charging him with two counts of first-degree assault, one count of second-degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child, according to the Erie County District Attorney's office.

Ziaire Davis, 17, is accused of shaking his 2-month-old daughter on Oct. 7, and throwing the infant onto a bed on another occasion, causing her to hit an adjacent wall.

The child was treated at Women & Children's Hospital.

Davis pleaded not guilty to the charges Thursday. State Supreme Court Justice John L. Michalski set his bail at $75,000. If convicted of all the charges, Davis faces a maximum of 25 years in prison.

Chief Rosanne E. Johnson and Assistant District Attorney Bethany A. Solek of the DA’s Special Victims Bureau are prosecuting the case.
