Suspect in toddler’s death makes first court appearance

“He was the sweetest little boy — he was smart and always smiling. I wish he was still with us,” an emotional Veronica Rix said of her son, 20-month-old Cameron Morrison, following a court appearance for the suspect in the child’s death.

Darnell D’Angelo Dorsey, 21, was arraigned on a single felony count of assault on a child resulting in death, but did not enter a plea. He is due back in court March 18 for plea entry and scheduling of pretrial hearings.
