Charged & Arrested
Daevon Motshwane, 18, was sitting in handcuffs in Merced County Superior Court when a man wearing orange striped overalls and also handcuffed attacked him from behind and appears to have elbowed Motshwane in the head, according to the video seen by KRON4. According to the Merced County Sheriff’s Office, the man in the jumpsuit, James Clay McRae, had previously been charged with first-degree murder.
When the fight broke out, officers were quick to react and bring the situation under control, subduing McRae, while the courtroom was temporarily cleared as well. Family members of the 9-month-old victim, Darius King Grigsby, were also present during the altercation, according to the report. “Every time you walk in, someone is going to come up to you and they’re going to get hit every time,” said Darius’s mother, Monica Ayala. “All I have to say is that he’s ready for what’s coming for you, boy. Like a lot of things get in your way and hurt you. Like damaged very badly. Darius’s aunt, Elena Pérez, according to the outlet, reacted by saying: “Every little thing that he receives towards him, he deserves it all. Every little thing that happens to him in jail, prison, whatever, he deserves it all, no matter what.”
Detectives with the Merced Police Department successfully tracked Motshwane from Merced, in California’s Central Valley, to the city of Gilroy, where a SWAT team arrested him on November 17. Police also detained a minor who they believe was the driver of the car. Motshwane faces life in prison after being charged with one count of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder, according to the Merced County district attorney. If he was considering the death penalty, they wouldn’t tell. He has been chosen for the morning of December 8 for the Motshwane arraignment.
