Mother Who Pretended 5-Year-Old Daughter Had Died in Car Crash Charged With Murder: Cops
Jasmine Anderson, 24, brought her daughter to the emergency room on July 17 with a severe neck injury.
Anderson said she and her daughter had been in a car crash, according to police. But when officers went to attempt to find the site of the crash, they couldn't. In addition, the injury did not appear to be one that could have been sustained in a crash, police said.
Further investigation led police to arrest Anderson on Tuesday. They charged her with second-degree murder in the death of her daughter. She is being held at Rapides Parish Detention Center on $500,000 bond and has not yet entered a plea.
“I want to thank all of our officers who worked so hard to investigate this case,” Chief Jerrod King said in a statement. “The wrongful death of a child is a horrible thing to see."
The investigation is ongoing.
