Bond set for man accused of concealing child’s death
Crime scene tape

Bond was set Monday morning for a man accused of concealing the death of a 6-year-old child.

Judge Paul Rose set Brandon Robinson’s bond at $100,000, or $200,000 in property, for the charges he faces in connection with the death of A’niyah Perry. Shelly Perry, the girl’s mother, had her bond set two weeks ago by Judge Jay Stewart.

Robinson also faces charges of cruelty to children, tampering with evidence and false statements and writings.

Hinesville police officers discovered the girl’s body May 1 after her mother called authorities to report her child was unresponsive. During Perry’s bond hearing on June 26, HPD Detective Jonathan Santiago testified Perry told them the child died in another state and was brought to Hinesville. She initially told officers responding to her Saunders Avenue home that she had put the child to sleep the afternoon of May 1 but when Perry went to wake her daughter about four hours later, she was unresponsive.

Santiago said security camera footage showed Perry and her boyfriend, Robinson, bringing the already deceased child, wrapped in a blanket, into the apartment.
