Angie Torres, the cousin of Chris Davila, was assaulted in BCSO custody Wednesday, officials said.

SAN ANTONIO — A woman who is in custody in connection to the death of baby King Jay Davila was assaulted in the Bexar County Jail Wednesday, a spokesperson confirmed.

According to the Bexar County Sheriff's Office, Angie Torres was assaulted by three inmates in the bathroom of the unit. The three inmates were placed under emergency management intensive supervision (EMIS) and relocated to lockdown. Torres signed a letter moving herself from the jail's general population to protective custody.

Torres was identified as the woman in surveillance video the night baby King Jay Davila was reported missing. She later admitted Christopher Davila's mother told her King Jay had been hurt, and that she helped to cover it up by taking the car and dumping the car seat.
