Poplar Bluff, MO — 28-year-old Jeremy McIntosh is being held in the Butler County jail on $1 million cash-only bond in connection with the beating death of 4-year-old Zoey Slagler.

According to police, Zoey’s parents, Jennifer and Adam Thrower, left her next-door with Jeremy and his wife, Jamie McIntosh, on Thursday. It was agreed that Zoey would spend the night with the couple and Jennifer would pick her up at about 4:00 p.m. the following day.

When Jennifer called Jeremy on Friday to inform him she was on her way home, he said he would just take Zoey over to her place. When Jennifer arrived home to check on her daughter, she found her unresponsive. Police say the severely bruised child had no pulse when first responders arrived at the home.

Jeremy was placed under arrest after he reportedly admitted to striking the child several times because she wouldn’t obey him and because she continued to cry for her mother and father. Autopsy results showed that Zoey died from blunt force trauma to the head.

Prosecutors have charged Jeremy with felony child abuse resulting in death, and Poplar Bluff Police Chief Danny Whiteley says he could also be looking at second-degree murder charges.
