In the wake of the death of her three-month old child, 26-year-old Karen Lashun Harrison has been charged with felony murder, first degree cruelty to children, second degree cruelty to children, simple battery and affray.
As seen in the video below, Harrison and a yet-to-be publicly identified adult female and male were involved in fisticuffs in a beauty supply store parking lot in Moultrie, Georgia.
During the course of the fight between Harrison and the other two individuals, Harrison’s infant was either purposely dropped to the pavement, or was ripped from her arms by one or both of the other assailants. After all, that’s up to a court of law to decide.
Police say the mom got into a fight with a woman at a beauty supply store and dropped her 3-month-old son onto the pavement. The baby was taken to the hospital with a head injury the next day and later died. https://t.co/jiLd3UKFun #KAKEnews
