Grandmother accused of covering up grandson's kidnapping released from prison

SAN ANTONIO, TX (CNN) - A woman accused of trying to help cover up her baby grandson's death was released from a Texas prison on Sunday.

Beatrice Sampayo is charged with tampering with evidence in the death of eight-month-old King Jay Davila.

The boy’s father Christopher Davila faces a series of charges, including felony injury to a child causing serious bodily injury and child endangerment.

Davila claims his son fell off a bed last month and landed face first on the floor.
He says he was afraid to call 911, and when he checked on him a few hours later, he was dead.

He's accused of staging a kidnapping to cover up the death with the help of family members.

Police ended up finding the child's body in a backpack buried in an open field near the father's home.

The grandmother was being held on a $250,000 bond but a judge reduced it to $50,000 on Friday.

She was released from jail on bond less than 48 hours later.

The child's mother and another relative also faces a charge of tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony.
