The family of a baby who was decapitated during birth in a Georgia hospital last year spoke at a press conference Wednesday after a medical examiner ruled the death a homicide.

The parents of Treveon Isaiah Taylor Jr., filed a fraud and negligence lawsuit in August 2023, claiming that the attending physician subjected the baby’s head to “excessive traction” and failed to perform a C-section in a timely manner, CNN reported at the time, citing the complaint.

On Tuesday, the Clayton County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the July 10, 2023 incident involving the newborn a homicide, the office said in a press release. The family’s attorneys claimed at the Wednesday press conference, which was aired by Atlanta News First, that the medical examiner’s determination confirmed their claims outlined in the complaint.
