A Dodge County couple is charged with killing a 3-year-old.

That’s according to Todd Lowery, special agent in charge of the GBI’s Eastman office.

He says David Smith, the child’s biological father, is charged with Child Cruelty and Felony Murder.

His girlfriend, Kaiko Smith, is charged with Child Cruelty and Malice Murder. He said the couple is not married, and Kaiko Smith is not related to the young victim.

Lowery says it happened last Friday in the Arthur Cooper trailer park in Eastman. Officers arriving on the scene found young Zachary Smith severely injured.

He later died at a local hospital and the couple was arrested that night.

Lowery would not discuss the child’s injuries or the autopsy results.

He said the GBI is still investigating the case.

The Eastman Examiner has learned that the case was presented to the Dodge County Magistrate Judge where a bond request was denied. The charges make the case ineligible for the Magistrate to set a bond and the case should now go to a Superior Court Judge for a bond hearing.
