Jordan Belliveau Case: Mother Faces New Charge for Allegedly Making Up Kidnapping Story
Charisse Stinson, 21, already faced felony child abuse and murder charges in the death of her son, Jordan Belliveau, whose body was discovered in wooded area Tuesday.
The Florida mother arrested in the killing of her 2-year-old son, whom she said had been taken by a stranger offering them a ride, has been charged for allegedly lying to police about what happened.
Charisse Stinson, 21, was charged on Friday with providing false information to a law enforcement officer, a third-degree felony.
She is already facing felony child abuse and murder charges in the death of her son, Jordan Belliveau, whose body was discovered in wooded area Tuesday.
Police said Stinson told them a man she did not know named Antwan attacked her after she and her son got into his car. The blow knocked out Stinson and when she woke, she was alone, she claimed.
"In interviewing the mother last night, she made significant admissions into what had happened to her child, which led us to have probable cause to arrest her in the death," Largo police Lt. Randall Chaney said Wednesday.
Stinson allegedly admitted to striking Jordan “in a moment of frustration,” which “in turn, caused the back of his head to strike an interior wall of her home,” authorities said.
Her alleged admission came after days of searching for her son, during which Stinson "continued to mislead the investigation," police said.
Stinson is expected to appear in court Friday on the new charge.
