Man wanted in death of Ashland toddler in court Friday

From sister station WSAZ:

A man wanted in connection with the death of a 16-month-old girl has been extradited back to Kentucky.

Brian “Trinity” Brewster, 45, was arrested by the US Marshals Office-NY about 8 a.m. on September 27. He was arrested on a fugitive from justice warrant without incident.

Brewster was transported back to Boyd County on December 29, 2011.

He faces charges of manslaughter and being a persistent felony offender in connection with the death of 16-month-old Cally Jobe.

KSP investigators say 19-year-old Lakyn Jobe left her daughter Cally at her house with an "acquaintance," Brian Brewster, on May 3, 2011.

When Lakyn returned, Cally was unresponsive. Lakyn took her to Kings Daughter's Medical Center. She was then flown to Charleston Area Medical Center where she died of her injuries. Troopers suspected assault and began their investigation.

The coroner's report indicated Cally died from abusive closed head trauma.

Brewster fled the state immediately after the child's death.

Brewster is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday at 9 a.m. He is being held in the Boyd County Detention Center.

In August, Lakyn Jobe was arrested on a felony charge of 1st degree criminal abuse. She remains in rial on $10,000 bond.

Her trial is set for January 18.
