NEW JERSEY CMC — A judge has temporarily freed the jailed father of a four-year-old boy, who was allegedly killed by a Jamaican-born transvestite.
“I begged the police to let me go get my son,” Okee Wade, 37, told reporters, referring to Myls Dobson, as he exited Atlantic County jail here after a judge gave him a three-week furlough to attend his son’s funeral on Tuesday.
“I told them I’m a single parent. I got a son that’s out there. I need to get home. I said I’d turn myself in. They didn’t care.”Police said Wade was arrested in Brooklyn, New York, on December 19 on an outstanding bench warrant stemming from a fraud case in New Jersey.
Prosecutors have charged Kryzie King, 27, born in Jamaica as Christopher King, with first-degree assault, reckless endangerment and unlawful imprisonment in the death of Myls, who was found dead two weeks ago in the bathroom of an apartment on Manhattan’s West Side.
Police say Wade had turned over the care of his son to King.Court records show Myls was bound, gagged, beaten and burned during the three weeks King was taking care of the boy.
