Man Kill Girlfriend’s Son, Weds Her A Week Later


A 21-year-old Atlantic City man suspected of killing his then-girlfriend’s 2-year-old son was arrested Monday, according to a report.

Jagger T. Jost was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals in his hometown Monday, more than eight months after the boy died of blunt-force trauma to the abdomen, reported.

Authorities says Jost killed Vernon Gaylord Sylver Jr. on May 16, 2015 in Greesnboro, N.C and then married the child’s mother less than a week later. The boy was her son from a previous relationship, the report said.

Jost is charged with first-degree murder and felony child abuse. He was being held in the Atlantic County jail awaiting extradition to North Carolina. Vernon was born in Philadelphia in November 2012.
