Karen Harrison, a 26-year old mother from Georgia who accidentally dropped her 3-month old son during a fight, has been officially charged with murder. The baby, who was brought to a local hospital for head injuries, has since died.
Apparently, Harrison had words with another woman identified as Terra Brown that quickly escalated into a physical fight.
Originally Harrison and her friend, Carneata Clark, told police that the baby was injured after he fell from her friend’s arms while she was holding him. But video footage clearly shows the two arguing and then fighting as Harrison cradles her baby in one arm.
When the two women begin to actually fight, the baby is seen falling to the ground and another woman rushes over to pick the child up.
According to WALB News 10, Harrison was since been charged with felony murder and cruelty to children. Local police say that she has also been charged with simple battery and affray for fighting. Meanwhile, Clark, has been charged with making a false statement and obstruction.
