Immanuel Humes, 40            –            Jasmin Stevenson, 34 

SUITLAND, Md. – A father is charged in connection with the death of his young daughter. He’s identified as 40-year-old Immanuel Humes of the 3900 block of Stone Gate Drive in Suitland.

The victim is his six-year-old child, Abigail Humes.

On May 10th, 2020, PGPD detectives were notified of the suspicious death of a young girl at a hospital in Washington DC. Emergency medical personnel had been called to the family’s Suitland home for the report of an unresponsive child earlier in the day. Abigail was unfortunately pronounced dead a short time after arriving at the hospital.

The preliminary results of an autopsy revealed obvious signs of trauma. In consultation with the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office, Immanuel Humes was charged with first degree assault, first degree child abuse and additional charges on June 17th. He was taken to the Department of Corrections where he remains.

On August 10th, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in the District of Columbia contacted PGPD homicide detectives. The autopsy determined the cause of Abigail’s death was complications from blunt force trauma. The manner of death was ruled a homicide.

Following this ruling, the PGPD worked with the State’s Attorney’s Office to amend the charges against Immanuel Humes. He’s now charged with common law murder and child abuse resulting in death. Abigail’s mother, 34-year-old Jasmin Stevenson, is also charged with 10 counts of neglect of a minor. She was arrested on August 12th.
