About three weeks after a South Georgia mother allegedly dropped her 3-month-old during a fight, leading to the baby’s death, the other woman involved in the fight was arrested, according to multiple media reports.
Terra Shanquelle Brown, 30, turned herself into the Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday for her involvement in the fight, Moultrie police told Albany-based news station WALB. She was charged with second-degree felony murder, second-degree child cruelty and affray.
On July 23, police arrested 26-year-old Karen Lashun Harrison and her friend, 26-year-old Carneata Clark, after they allegedly lied about the fight that led to Harrison’s child’s death, AJC.com previously reported.
Harrison told police the child fell from Clark’s arms. However, surveillance video revealed Harrison and Brown, who was reportedly pregnant at the time, were in a fight at Thomas Beauty Supply on July 19.
During the scuffle, Harrison is seen dropping her baby, police said. The baby was taken the next day to Colquitt Regional Medical Center for a head injury, where the child later died.
