Father Arrested in Connection With Death of His 6-Year Old Child

At approximately 8:45 a.m. yesterday, Salem emergency responders were called to a residence in the 600 block of 18th ST SE on the call of a child reported to be unresponsive. The child was transported by ambulance to Salem Health where they later died.

The investigation into the suspicious death of the six-year-old child led to the arrest of the boy’s father, Robby-Joe Alexander Davenport, and Davenport’s domestic partner, Cierra Wiedner.

Davenport, age 29, and Wiedner, age 25, were each charged with criminal mistreatment in the first degree.

An autopsy was completed by the State Medical Examiner’s Office. The results were not made public as this investigation is active.

No further information was released by the Salem Police Department at this time.

All suspects are considered innocent until any/all charges are proven true against them in a court of law.
