Man Arrested For The Rape And Killing Of 5-Year-Old Girl


25-year-old Mickel Cherry has been charged in connection to the rape and killing of 5-year-old Zoey Felix, in Topeka, Kansas.

Cherry has been charged with capital murder, first-degree murder, and rape.

On Monday night, officers arrived to a gas station and located fire personnel trying to save the girl. She was transported to a medical facility where she later died.

On Tuesday morning, Cherry was apprehended and placed in jail on a $2 million bond. He could face the death penalty.

The Shawnee County District Attorney has noted that the victim and suspect were acquainted with each other but no other relationship was said to be between the two. Some neighbors noted seeing the victim with the suspect prior to this incident.

Authorities in Topeka had been to the child’s home multiple times. Recently, they had gone in September when the power had gone out. Officers had then found the girl in good spirits and health. She had been left in the care of her parent, through a custodial agreement. Officers then left the residence.

Reports indicate that the child had been residing in a tent as her mother lived in the home. Authorities aren’t sure why this was the case.

An investigation is continuing.


  1. Poor precious baby, castrate and burn him at the stake literally for all to see! Go ahead and lock the mother up too.

  2. A true system FAILURE,tyat resulted in this child’s torture and death. Charge not only him but any so called parents as well!

  3. What a despicable speciman of a human being!!! That poor precious little girl!! Agreed….the mom needs to be locked up as well. Like wtf was she living in a tent???? A tent??? Really?? And mom parlaying in the house!! Fucking trash bro!! At least that precious little angel is free from harm and hurt. No telling what else she was going through!! Just breaks my heart!!

  4. And once again, this horrible disgusting evil act committed by another white American, make to be exact. I wonder if they’re ever going to acknowledge this serious problem within their community. At the end of the day it’s usually their own children being the victims of these sick perverted individuals.
