Darnell Gray’s Caregiver To Be Arraigned Thursday

An arraignment has been scheduled for Quatavia Givens, the woman accused of causing injuries that led to the death of 4 year old Darnell Gray in Jefferson City.

Givens will be in Cole County Court tomorrow [Thursday] morning at 9:30 for her initial court appearance. Court records do not indicate Givens has an attorney at this time.


Givens was allegedly the caretaker that reported Darnell Gray missing from her home on Buena Vista, alleging someone had either taken him from the apartment or he walked away from the residence.

After a 6 day search, Gray’s body was found in the 2100 block of Louis Circle. The probable cause statement says his body showed signs of blunt and sharp object trauma.

Givens is charged with one count of abuse of a child resulting in death.
