Man Charged With Murder In Nephew’s Death

SNOW HILL — A Pocomoke man was charged this week with second-degree murder and first-degree child abuse after his 3-year-old nephew died from injuries sustained while in his care.

Kevin M. Sewell, 27, was formally charged on Monday with second-degree murder and first-degree child abuse stemming from an alleged incident that occurred last Sunday, May 3 at his residence. Sewell had custody of the 3-year-old and when the toddler was returned to his Accomack County, Va. home, he had sustained severe trauma to his head and abdomen along with other injuries.

The child died of the injuries allegedly sustained while in his uncle’s care at the Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughter in Norfolk, Va. Worcester County State’s Attorney Beau Oglesby said on Wednesday he could not provide much more information about the case as of mid-week.
