MOULTRIE, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia woman who accused of dropping and fatally injuring her 3-month-old baby during an altercation with another woman was denied bond.

WALB-TV reports 26-year-old Karen Lashun Harrison was charged with felony murder, cruelty to children and simple battery.

Moultrie Police Lt. Freddie Williams says Harrison got into a fight Friday with a woman at a beauty supply store and dropped the baby onto the pavement.

The baby was taken to the hospital Saturday with a head injury where he later died.

Harrison told police the baby was injured when he fell from family friend Carneata Clark’s arms.

Clark corroborated the story. She’s charged with false statements and obstruction of an officer. She was released on a $5,000 bond.

The other woman involved in the fight hasn’t been charged.

Williams says more arrests are possible.
