Georgia mom charged with murder after baby falls from her arms during fight, dies

MOULTRIE, Ga. – A Georgia mother faces several charges, including murder, after she allegedly dropped her 3-month-old baby during a fight with another woman, leading to the baby’s death.

Karen Lashun Harrison, 26, has been charged with felony murder, cruelty to children, simple battery and affray, Moultrie police said in a news release.

Harrison’s friend, Carneata Clark, was not involved in the fight but has been charged for obstruction and giving a false statement, according to WALB. Police said Harrison initially told investigators the boy suffered the head injury when Clark, a family friend, dropped him. Clark confirmed the story, according to Moultrie police.

The fight happened Friday outside Thomas Beauty Supply store and was caught on video.

The other woman involved in the brawl has not been charged as of Wednesday.

      Just exactly where did she come from??? Did you watch the video and news report? The investigation is ongoing due to witnesses statements. The other girl wasn’t charged with anything, but it’s mentioned in the news
      report as questionable. People need quit “quick blaming”, and let the law and their investigation determine charges against mother.. Of course, in a situation where a baby or young child passes, the person that “involves” the child is automatically presumed as the guilty party. Was the Infant at risk in the vehicle and the mother did her best to protect her child??? Could this have been a result of the mother doing she thought was be I????
