GARY, Indiana -- After nearly four months on the run, a Davenport man has been arrested and charged with first degree murder and child endangerment in the death of the 5-year-old son of his girlfriend.
The U.S. Marshals Great Lakes Fugitive Task Force arrested Tre Henderson, 26, in Gary on Tuesday, Aug. 28. Henderson is accused of assaulting 5-year-old Ja’Shawn Bussell, causing head and other injuries that resulted in the boy vomiting several times over a four-day period in late April. The child was taken to a Davenport hospital and then airlifted to Iowa City, where he died on May 1 after being taken off life support.
Earlier this week, Ja'Shawn's mother - Jacqueline Majanise Rambert - was arrested in Chicago and also charged with first degree murder and child endangerment.
Both suspects are expected to be extradited to Scott County to stand trial.
