Monday night, surgeons at Levine's Children's Hospital reattached the final piece of Kilah Davenport's skull. Davenport, 3, was severely beaten back in May, and some doctors originally thought she would not survive.
According to the Union County Sheriff's Office, 22-year-old Joshua Wilford Houser, Kilah's stepfather, beat the little girl with a blunt object in Union County, and threw her against a wall. Houser has been in jail on a $1 million bond since the incident.
"The doctor said it (attaching the bone flap) was like a puzzle putting it back together, so they worked for quite some time putting it back together and putting it in her head," said Kilah's grandmother, Leslie Davenport.
Kilah is expected to recover in the hospital for the next several days, and could be released by the end of the week. The Davenport family is working with elected officials across the state to pass Kilah's Law.
If passed, it would lengthen the prison sentence for people who cause debilitating injuries to children. It would also require those convicted to be monitored after being released from prison.
