HHarlem Man Indicted In Beating Death of 6 Year Old Zymere Perkins

January 31, 2017

A Manhattan grand jury indicted a Harlem man in connection with the beating death of his girlfriend’s 6-year-old son.
42-year-old Rysheim Smith was officially charged Tuesday in the death of Zymere Perkins.

He will appeared in court on the indictment and the charges were unsealed.

The child’s mother was previously indicted on one count of manslaughter for her son’s death.

Zymere died Sept. 26 after what prosecutors say was months of abuse by his mother and her boyfriend in their Harlem apartment.


Both were arrested on charges of endangering the welfare of a child.

A spokeswoman for the medical examiner said the child had evidence of “acute and chronic abuse and neglect.”
