Five Years Later, Man Charged for Toddler’s Murder


Nearly five years after a 16-month-old Jamestown girl was beaten to death her mother’s boyfriend has been charged with murder and manslaughter.

35-year-old Tyler Perez is charged with the death of Nayla Hodnett, who died April 17, 2014, in a Buffalo hospital after being beaten in her home.

Perez, and the child’s mother Angel Hodnett, had been persons of interest from the beginning. A year ago District Attorney Patrick Swanson said he wouldn’t be pressing charges unless new evidence was discovered.

Perez was arraigned this morning and sent to jail in lieu of half a million dollars cash bail.
