A Georgia woman was charged in the death of a baby dropped during a fight that was caught on surveillance video, according to reports on Aug. 13.

WALB-TV reported that 30-year-old Terra Shanquelle Brown turned herself in on Aug. 11 and was charged with second-degree murder, second-degree child cruelty, and affray.

Officials said that she was pregnant during the time of the fight, which took place last month.

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 the death of Harrison’s child, reported the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Harrison told police that the child fell from her arms. But surveillance video showed Harrison and Brown attacking one another in front of a beauty supply store on July 19.

In the video, Harrison is seen dropping her baby. The next day, the baby was transported to Colquitt Regional Medical Center for a head injury, and the child later died.

Police charged her with felony murder, first-degree child cruelty, second-degree child cruelty, simple battery, and affray charges. Clark was charged with making false statements and obstruction.

In an interview with WALB, Clark said that there is more to the incident than meets the eye.

“She strong though, she real strong. Karen real strong,” Clark told the news outlet.
