West Melbourne Man Charged With Baby's Murder


MELBOURNE, Florida -- The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office has arrested 22-year-old Gavin Sola, who resides at 105 San Paulo Circle in West Melbourne, Florida, and charged him with First Degree Felony Murder and Aggravated Child Abuse.   


The arrest arose from an incident where a four-month-old baby girl was taken to Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne, Florida on July 29, 2012.  Officials say the baby was unresponsive when she arrived at the hospital and was immediately airlifted to Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital in Orlando, Florida where she was later pronounced deceased on July 30, 2012.   


Sola is currently being held at the Brevard County Jail Complex on a No Bond status.


Brevard County Sheriff's spokesperson Lt. Tod Goodyear said that the investigation revealed that the infant was left in Sola’s care while the mother went to the store.  The mother returned approximately thirty minutes later to allegedly find Sola and the unresponsive infant.  


The infant was rushed to the hospital and then transferred to Arnold Palmer where doctors discovered that the victim had head trauma.  An autopsy conducted today found that the child had died due to a skull fracture that resulted from blunt force trauma.  



Anyone with information about the investigation is urged to call the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Unit at 321-633-8413 or CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477)  


All calls to CRIMELINE are confidential, and callers can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward for information leading to an arrest.

How do you judge someone that you do not know. He is not the type of person to murder a child.

Yea well I know him personally and Idc what happened. That's messed up and he deserves to pay for what he did because clearly he didn't even have the decency to call 911 he just waited for his gf to come find the baby! Pathetic excuse of a human being.

Unless you were in the home, you have no idea what happened. Andrea isn't a gem either, people. She never wanted that baby during her entire pregnancy. You have absolutely NO idea what happened. Gavin has a daughter who is around 4/5 years old who is safe and alive and has never been hurt by him. He loved Andrea and her baby, and he is unimaginably upset by this.

Yea you could be right but in the same instance he should have known what to do if the baby fell or something along the lines... And people that deploy get messed up in the head and aren't used to being around certain things afterwards. So yes I don't think he's a bad guy at heart but I think he needs help he has never been a good soldier and has always been in trouble so maybe if it is the way you say he will be cleared and see if or how he acts then. Personally I think he just finally snapped and if you say you know him that well then you could see him doing it too...

I just wish he wouldn't have been so opposed to seeking/accepting help before it got out of control.

I don't know him but before every one keeps pointing fingers at him they should look at andrea bc her own parents won't let her near the house bc they think she has some thing to do with it, I just think she needs to be looked into, and not as a victim. Shes taken zoey outall night to bars and partying after wards at ppls houses and driven with zoey drunk, I know for a fact that she still did many types of drugs as a mother with her child near by.

I think andrea miller the shitty ass mom of beautiful baby zoey did it. She never wanted zoey and always acted like it was a game, she needs to be questioned like hell 20$$ says she "accidentally" fucks up her story after being asked a few times. She lures and treats every one around her like shit unless she needs them for the moment then tosses them to the ditch, my opinion she got tired of having a responsibility other then drugs and partying.

I personally know Andrea (not because I want to) but she somehow got involved with my family and she didn't seem to me to be someone that deserved to have a child. I heard from a very very close source that she didn't want the baby and complained about her all the time. Who knows what really happened. I didn't know Gavin but I was in the same unit as him before he joined and we have a lot of mutual friends that said he wasn't a saint either. At the end of the day, justice needs to be served for baby Zoey. If Gavin didn't do this on purpose, I pray to God that this is proven and the rightful person is charged. This just breaks my heart. And if this is true that Andrea was bringing drugs around this child, I pray that she gets the punishment that she deserves and can never bare children again.
