According to jail records, Samayo’s bond was lowered earlier this week from $250,000 to $50,000.
Sampayo was charged with tampering in the case of 8-month-old King Jay, when he reportedly went missing.
After an extensive investigation, Christopher Davila, the baby’s father, eventually confessed King Jay fell off the bed, hit his head and later died. Davila claimed he was too scared to call police and buried the baby in a neighborhood field. His cousin, Angie Torres, was part of a staged kidnapping. She was also charged with tampering.
On February 1, the cause of death of the 8-month-old was ruled a homicide. The baby had been killed by blunt-force trauma.
Davila was originally charged with injury to a child by omission as well as other weapon and drug charges.
No updates on his charges have been provided.
