Hearing scheduled for motion to suppress Jalen Vaden's statement

The hearing for the motion to suppress Jalen Vaden's statements to investigating officers has been scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday, April 2, before Judge David Mouton in Jasper County Circuit Court.

Vaden, 22, Carl Junction, is charged with second degree murder and felony child abuse in connection with the death of three-year-old Jayda Kyle.

Vaden's attorney, Tracey Martin, says her client's statement should be tossed because he asked for Judd McPherson, Jayda's maternal grandfather, who is also a criminal defense attorney.

Though Vaden signed a waiver, he immediately asked, "Is Judd here?" according to the motion. Martin contends that all questioning should have stopped at that point since Vaden asked for a lawyer.

The beating that led to Jayda Kyle's death took place November 30 at the home Vaden and the child's mother, Devyn Kyle, shared at 405 Meadow Lake Drive in Carl Junction. The three-year-old died December 2 at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City.

Vaden is being held in the Jasper County Jail on $1 million bond- $750,000 cash or surety and $250,000 cash only.

Shocked that there hasn't been something posted yet about how the "elite" of this area can do anything they want and get away with it. People are usually quick with rants detailing everything about the people involved in this story like they are reporters for TMZ of the Joplin Metro area. Keeping their noses in others business while complaining that those involved think they are better than others. The gossip hounds never consider that those "elites" are only on that pedestal because of the attention t hey recieve from those complaining about their status.
Come on, don't let me down. I only clicked on this story to read comments about the victim's family. Someone post some hearsay or third hand gossip...

6:47. There are no winners in this tragedy, only death, pain and loss. This is not an episode on TMZ, this is life, death and imprisonment. I am only praying for justice.
