Mother Charged With Murder After Dropping Her Baby And Killing Him During Fight With Another Woman


A mother has been charged with murder after allegedly dropping her baby boy and killing him during a cat fight outside a beauty store.

Karen Lashun Harrison was allegedly seen fronting up to another woman while holding her son in the parking lot of Thomas Beauty Supply in Moultrie, Georgia, on July 19.

Harrowing CCTV shows the baby tumble to the ground during the tussle, with the brawl continuing even as he lies on the hard surface.

A bystander swoops in to pick up the infant moments after he hits the floor. Seconds later the fight broke up, with both women returning home, WTXL reported.

Cops say 26-year-old Harrison took her baby to the hospital the next day, claiming he’d fallen at home. Tragically the boy, who has not been named, died shortly afterwards. Police say they quickly worked out her story was untrue but were stunned when they discovered how the baby was fatally injured.

Lieutenant Freddie Williams from Moultrie Police Department said: “This is very disturbing, that two adults would fight in public place.

“Especially while holding a three month old child in her arms. We investigated the incident and determined the baby did not receive his injuries how it was reported. It was reported to us that the baby had fallen from the caregivers arms and received the injuries. Then we got information that there was a fight.”

Harrison faces charges including felony murder and child neglect.

Another woman called Carneata Clark, who was not the other woman involved in the fight, has been accused of giving false statements, and obstructing an officer in relation to the baby’s death.

That other female fighter has not been named, and is understood to not be facing any charges.
