SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - The trial of a Sioux City man accused of killing his girlfriend's 19-month-old daughter has been delayed to late October.

Tayvon Davis is charged with first-degree murder. His trial was scheduled to begin on July 13. That has been continued to October 26.

Court records show, in July and August of 2018, a 19-month-old child under Davis's care suffered an elbow injury, frequently vomited, and stopped walking.

The child was brought to a local hospital after she was unresponsive with what were described as "grave injuries." The child died days later.

An autopsy determined the child died due to complications from multiple blunt force injuries.
