A former NFL player accused of killing his girlfriend's 5-year-old daughter told police the child died during a grueling workout session to help her lose weight.

Cierre Wood, a former Notre Dame and NFL running back, faces a charge of first-degree murder in the death of La'Rayah Davis, who died last week from a cardiac arrest and internal injuries caused by multiple blunt force trauma.

In addition to the blunt force injuries, La'Rayah's liver was nearly split in half from blunt force trauma to her abdomen.

Wood, 28, told police La'Rayah was too "chunky" for her age. So he forced her to do wind sprints, sit ups and wall squats in their Las Vegas apartment.

La'Rayah collapsed last Tuesday during an intense round of sit ups.

Wood's girlfriend, Amy Taylor, was charged with child abuse and neglect for ignoring La'Rayah when she complained about chest pains shortly before she died.

Taylor, 25, allegedly sat on the child's chest and stomach as a form of punishment. She told police she was at the grocery store when La'Rayah died.

According to Fox Sports, Wood told police he spanked the girl for misbehaving, and when Taylor objected he turned to exercise as a form of punishment for the child. He called the workouts "learning through fun."

At a hearing on Thursday, a Las Vegas judge warned the courtroom about autopsy photos that showed the severity of La'Rayah's injuries.

"Once you've seen them, you can't ever unsee them," said Justice of the Peace Melanie Andress-Tobiasson.

The autopsy found cracked ribs and severe injuries to La'Rayah's lungs and diaphragm, a dome shaped muscle that separates the lungs from the abdominal organs and assists in breathing.


La'Rayah's biological father, Danaun Davis, traveled from California to attend Thursday's hearing. "You purposely hurt my kid. I never thought I'd bury my child at 5 years old," Davis said, according to KMOV.

Wood maintained his innocence in court. Jail records show he is being held without bail.

The judge rejected Taylor's request for release on bail pending a May 21 preliminary hearing.

According to Fox Sports, Taylor cried as Wood stood shackled in the courtroom.

Wood played for NFL teams in Houston, New England and Buffalo before signing to the Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian football League in 2017.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Them Cock Diesel dudes need to exercise his azz until he collapse and kill over too.. and let the autopsy show blunt force trauma in areas that are uncommon to heterosexual men..

  • shelly

    White women will do anything a Black man tells them to do. I hope she spends the rest of her dumb ass life in jail.

  • Yup, I said it

    Trifling woman has kids with an absentee father. She finds a controlling abusive man because she cant be "single." The abusive boyfriend abuses the kid while trifling mother turns a blind eye.
    Why does this keep happening?

  • BorisBlack1

    Why do you all think THE MAJORITY of jail inmates have some type of honor? It's really baffling....

  • goat

    You spelled "beaten to death" wrong.

  • dblogged

    Poor baby. I’m sorry my love. You will ride up to a better place on that day.
    Sick world

  • bemetoo

    Yea I seen this yesterday... so sad

  • Alextra Ballard

    she needs to be is being charged as well

  • Junkanoo

    No one at this childs school noticed any signs of abuse . This kid was being torchered, sat on , forced to exercise to exhaustion ,between the physical and mental abuse she probably used food to comfort herself . The dad shows up after its too late . The mom and her loser boyfreind should get the maximum sentence if her child was to much for her mentally she should have sent her to her dad. RIP little one.

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Poor baby, as always to the fire pit for those demons up top!

  • jayhawkpride

    She won't. Once she gets out, she may never return to jail.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    "and internal injuries caused by multiple blunt force trauma"

    which "exercise" caused this, you dead-eyed mf?????!!!
    throw both their azzes away, and i pray she doesn't have any other children, smh.

  • ???TheRider???

    He’s a trash ass man & she’s a trash ass mother.

  • Rayne

    They let these men do anything and say anything to them and their children just to say I got a man. Smdh baby fat falls off kids. ????

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    when you figure it out, please let us know, smh. these poor children being born to these ignorant azz women who have not an ounce of maternal instinct.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I couldn't even read the entire post. this is so fukin disgusting. These posts today are just to heavy for my heart. For the life of me I can not understand how a woman, a mother, a human being, would allow a man to harm her child. to allow urself to love a man more than you love your child is just sickening! This is not the first time his demonic controlling assss did something like this to this child she just turned the other cheek, her asss should be sitting in jail right beside him. sick bytch!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Now THIS IS ONE MURDERER that doesn't deserve daylight!

  • Alextra Ballard

    That nugga is behind bars... goodT. Ni I hope and pray those inmates git all up in his asz and give it a grueling workout until he collapses

  • xenaD

    She didn’t turn nothing. She LET him do that! He probably beat her ass a couple times.. or not! Either way, he needs to die

  • WutizstillHERE!

    I don't know mayyybe because I worked in both probation and corrections in georgia and both seen and heard about prison punishments especially when it comes to harm of children..

  • T Willis

    A woman should never leave a child alone with a man ?????. These men are mentally disturbed and are sometimes too aggressive to be alone with children unsupervised. Too many men rot in jail for shaking babies/toddlers, or for being too aggressive in the way that they physical discipline them. Smdh

  • Soda

    The mom is just as guilty, if not more. She sat on the girl's chest.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!


  • Alextra Ballard

    This Po white trash knew exactly what was going on. I’m sure her baby gurl complained because she was most likely hurting and this bidch stood by and did nothing. She is complicit. There is no way she didn’t know what was goinz on. He probably was abusing her asz as well.

  • Phillybruh

    Raising these hyper masculine men with no coping skills, and no turn off switch this is what you get.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    He should had done a "grueling exercise" to help Him Lose His Ugly. These low breeds Are Not Ready to raise Children!!! He should had "exercised" His Chunky Brain to death.

  • Guest

    Ughh! I can't with these posts today.

  • Luv R

    Do not pray for that outcome, vengeance does not belong to you.

  • Luv R

    Now that's a prayer worth praying...

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    But His Ugly Can't fall off!!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    That Is Why They Go to Them. I Will Never Have One like this And Stay, Never!!!

  • jwoo250

    Yep my kids dad was starting to get too aggressive with mine and has a very short attention for kids. Yet he wanted kids. I was like not with mine you won't.

    I'm not afraid to speak up for mine biological father or not. Hate me talk about the fact that you think I'm taking your rights away as a father. But you WILL NOT hit mine or abuse mine in a matter that will scar and damage them emotionally no sir not ever.

    Speak up for your kids you are their voices and they are your future. Forget about these men. My kids are mine forever and for life.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Black Women Are Not Far Behind!!! And I Know this as a Black Woman.

  • MistaO

    Females should be under a monitoring program when trying to raise children sans the biological Father. The worse judgment...

  • Renee26

    She didn't get exercised to death she was beaten and abused and died as a result of her injuries.

    RIP poor child raised by idiots

  • Renee26

    Don't want fat kids... Change their diets. Kids tend to be active when they play (if they're not attached to electronic toys all the time). If you notice your child gaining weight it's time for a lifestyle change...for the whole family.

    The health risks associated with childhood obesity are terrifying and reality is that fat kids often turn into obese adults.

  • Renee26

    She's the one who sat on the girl as punishment... She killed her

  • NaeNae2015


  • Renee26

    Not all men are like that... But to hell with those that are

  • MsSapphire9800

    Here comes her Lawyer...she didn't know how bad it was...he abuse her...she wasn't allow to help her daughter...and than the white girl strategy..she was molest when she was younger and he was s3xing her against her will and she was so scare she didn't report it.

  • Renee26

    Exactly... Her actions were more damaging... All the internal injuries smdh

  • TheRealTW

    I cannot find the words to express the pain and sadness I feel about this.

    That girl died in agony. I hate this. May she forever live with the living God.

  • Renee26

    The mother sitting on her the day before... Previous abuse. And she hit her head when she collapsed

  • Renee26


  • Renee26

    She is

  • Yup, I said it

    That burns me to the core. That whole "I was too scared to do anything" excuse. Only white women are allowed to be too scared. Blacks, Latinos, and Asians know we better fight like an alley cat or stay strapped becauase nobody else can get away with being too " scared" to do the right thing but a white woman.

  • Leigh Burton

    Someone needs to make him exercise until he collapse, break his ribs, and sit on him in jail!

  • Roderick2011

    True. These women chase the bad boy types and after having children with them expect them to be the Father Knows Best type of dad.
    Nope. Not happening.

  • TinyTim

    He killed her because she wasn’t his. And the mom cared more about keeping a dick than her own child.

  • TinyTim

    If your child is fat that is your fault as a parent. They can only eat what you feed them.

  • Ni Ni

    She looks like PWT that has made poor decisions all her life and he looks like a madman. Poor baby ?

  • DeJeri

    A lot of women turn a blind eye to physical and sexual abuse of their children by their partners. This wasn't the first time I'm sure. .... just desperate for a man and don't want to be alone

  • DeJeri

    Right. Diet and exercise doesn't involve blunt force trauma.

  • TheOwley

    Poor kid, wacked parents. RiP.

  • WinterIsComing

    Idiots! Everybody shouldn’t be allowed to breed. But Like the lady from my 600lb life said: Nobody wants any fat ass kids. There are healthy and safe ways for a child to lose weight without killing them! Could’ve gotten the child a nutritionist, enrolled her in some physical activities and put a lock on the refrigerator and pantry.

  • Seldomseen

    Poor baby this ish make me so mad. I hope they azz get whipped everyday for the rest of they life.

  • Trace da Ace heart breaks for that baby girl....both mother and boyfriend are stupid ignorant pieces of horse shyt...and both of them deserve to be buried under the jail!!! There are better ways to help children loose weight....not this....not this way...."learning through fun"???? what the hell is "fun" about torturing a child???? Sitting on her chest?? What the hell??? See......I cann when it comes to dem babies.....

  • NewNew

    Or take her to the park to run around more, or feed her better foods, or let her grow out of the baby fat phase. They should go under the jail for this.

  • WinterIsComing

    Idiots seem to be in high supply today smh

  • MsSapphire9800

    Nah...she was hoping he would get another NFL contract and she would be his main woman...she played a big you sit on your daughter chest and stomach and not care.

  • WinterIsComing

    Yup! You see it time and time again.

  • guest

    Smdh. Krh od them deserve life

  • TheRealTW

    Yes. She might of liked team sports.

    If she had survived this, she would have been turned off to sports forever. This event is sad either way.

  • Ni Ni

    That momma was off the chain last night ?

  • Tlowe89

    She looks just like my sis when she was young

  • Faux Gibbler

    I have no words.

  • Tlowe89

    The mother should be charged for murder too. They are two sick vile people. How can see cry for the man that help murder her daughter

  • Prince Zuko

    All of us were chunky at some point in our childhood this is a shame and she has the nerve to cry for this clown when he murdered her daughter ? Sicking

  • Tlowe89

    Agreed. She was severely abused and had major injuries and when you add grueling exercise to damaged organs, welp... you get a dead child on your hands.

  • Tlowe89

    She didn’t turn a blind eye... the trifling bag of sh!t sat on her.

  • hottlanta

    I tried 2 pull it up but l couldnt. I was like dayumm.

  • hottlanta

    These girls watching them fat azz women modeling clothes 4 sizes too small on youtube n think it is cute. I saw one chick azz as wide as a door n had the nerve 2 say she got a small waist.?? stomach hanging down n everythang. She was dead azz serious.

  • WinterIsComing

    She sure was! Did you see when she said she put her husband’s sh!t on the porch?!

  • Tlowe89

    I wasn’t. I was skinny as a bean pole, but as soon as puberty hit I started to fill out. But you can’t help how your genes are. My sister was chunky as a child and her diet was the same as mines. I genes took more so after my dads side of the family and I took after my moms.

  • Tlowe89

    Small in What reference????? As in the size of a African elephant or small as in the size of a brown bear

  • SpiceGirl

    I hope he gets what is coming 10 times over! Baby girl rest easy! POS mom!

  • Prince Zuko

    I feel u I did have a few friends who were just naturally slim but some of us were a lil chubby but as we got older like u said our bodies fill out. & Personally being skinny is not the new wave look at all of them girls on love & hip-hop who go out a buy bbw body parts they look ridiculous to me but to each is own. He wanted a slim child that wasn't even his child. Every complexion, size & height will be loved by someone who adores it . Being different makes us unique in that way and we all like different things so for the life of me I wouldnt understand why this lil girl weight would be an issues for him to torture that lil girl like that. I have no remorse for the momz and the demon step dad I think he should get 25 to life and the momz should be court ordered to get her tubes tied she doesn't deserve a 2nd chance at this

  • hottlanta

    Time for u 2 go easter egg hunting.

  • Prince Zuko

    Exactly how dare she ?

  • T Willis

    Lmao dang you feel real strong about obesity, huh? ? I remember reading your comments on other threads about weight or obesity and cracking up cause you went hard asf ?

  • T Willis


  • Guess Who


  • Renee26

    Yes, it's more about health to me. I blame nobody but parents for overweight kids. It's unfair to the kids and borderline abusive. As parents WE are responsible for setting limits. Why would a good parent want to subject their child to living a lifestyle that leads to poor health issues, low self-esteem, bullying, and many times a lifetime struggle with weight??? It's a serious problem. I especially can't stand to see fit parents (mainly celebs) who do everything to keep their bodies right but they don't do the same for their kids.

  • Renee26

    Yup... Fry their asses

  • Renee26

    Yup... Poor thing. It was only a matter of time for her to succumb to those injuries be it days or weeks later

  • WinterIsComing


  • KJBibleOnSlavShips

    are some black me not the DEVIL!!!!!

  • Marlika

    Why do the bio fathers always wanna come around after the child is dead????? if he was a constant figure in his daughter life and talked her in the regular he would’ve known she was being hurt. So he can miss me with this shat.

    And who sits on a child chest as punishment?? Both of these retarded mofos need to die a violent death. I hope Leroy, Skip and Bubba give him a good work out in prison. And I hope Laverne and dem beat the life out the mother as well!!????

  • Brooklyn23

    Well said

  • Ni Ni

    I missed that, but i believe it. ?

    A beautiful baby! I can’t imagine what she went through! And I strongly feel mothers should serve the same time for letting these pieces of sh*t kill their kid.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Strange how you can look at the both of them and see there's no one home.

  • BaileyBlue17

    Dead in the Eyes looking bastard. Put him up under the jail...for LIFE!!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Neither of them understand child development.

  • free

    He said he talked to her a day prior and she was excited because they were gonna see each other in two weeks. I don’t think her mom was gonna let her spill the beans.

  • free

    He is a child beater and they found blood in her underwear also. Being chunky was an excuse for him to do what he wanted to do.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I saw a woman today whose body was so misshapened from the waist down she looked deformed. Yes...she had on spandex leggings.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    She was deliberately k!lled by two f00ls who should never be given another opportunity to parent.
    She was tortured and punished for something she had no control over.

  • Parent

    OMG this bastard wasn't even the father. I can't. Another all american couple.

    Women, once you have kids, your loins and privates should be placed on hold. You made a life changing decision. Raise the children you created until they are grown.

    I am disgusted!

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Like the hyenas on The Lion King.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    They both deserve acid baths. That poor baby suffered horribly before she died and you can't tell me the mother didn't know he was abusing her daughter. That POS just was so desperate to have a man, she decided to turn a blind eye to it. She probably was such a sweety pie too and that dead eyed MF had the audacity to complain about her weight. They both need to be beat to death.

  • ClaireHuxtable


  • NeverSurprised

    We see this over and over again -- women so desperate for a sorry ass POS "man" that they sacrifice the safety of their own children. I'm suck to my stomach thinking about how much that innocent child suffered.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    They always had that "half a brain" look in their eyes.

  • hottlanta

    Child this chick wore a size 3x n had the nerve 2 give us single women relationship advice on why r we single. Gurlllllllll the comments were off the chain. When someone told her the reason why he married her was all he had 2 do was take her 2 a buffet 2 keep her happy they will marry her as well. She took it down. But l was there for it all.??

    My God, that little one looks like she was just the sweetest, most precious child. Please forgive me for saying this, I don't mean to offend anyone, but if you can, do whatever the hell you must to stay w the people you have children with because it's gotta hurt double bad when somebody you could've stayed with gets with someone who kills your kid. (Don't know their situation. Could've been impossible. But damn.)
