Derion Vence, the man suspected of killing 4-year-old Maleah Davis, professed his innocence during an exclusive jailhouse interview with ABC13.

“I ain’t no killer, bro,” Vence told ABC’s Chauncey Glover. “Chauncy, I loved Maleah so much. I did for her more than her own parents. I never had a biological daughter. I would never do anything to hurt her. That’s not me. Ask anyone who knows me, and they’ll tell you I’m not that type of dude and I was good with the kids.”

Remains discovered in Arkansas were recently identified to be that of Maleah Davis.

As of now, Vence has been charged with tampering with evidence, namely a corpse.

“I should be home with my family. With Maleah, the kids and Brittany, cooking dinner and watching Netflix,” Vence added.

When Chauncey asked him about the little girl’s death, he replied,

“Nothing bad happened to Maleah.”

As we reported, community activist Quanell X revealed that Vence told him that Maleah died accidentally and that he dumped her body off a road in Arkansas.

The circumstances into her death are currently unclear.
