Kevon Watkins, who was 16-years-old at that time of the fatal attack in February 2018, had reportedly been playing an Xbox game before he changed the family’s Wi-Fi password because the internet was slow due to the number of people using it.

Alexus was pronounced dead of asphyxiation early the next morning at a local hospital.On Friday, August 2, 2019, Kevon was found guilty of felony murder and aggravated assault.
