James Harris has been charged with murder in the death of his girlfriend’s 1-year-old baby Amierah Roberson. Harris allegedly confessed to his role in Amierah’s death.
Harris, 23, reportedly told investigators he killed the baby in his apartment before dumping her body in a wooden area in south suburban Riverdale, according to Fox 23.
Harris was allegedly caught on surveillance entering the woods where Amierah was found, according to the Chicago Sun Times.
Amierah succumbed to injuries sustained from subdural hematoma and closed head injuries due to an assault, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Prosecutors are now alleging Harris doused baby Amierah with gasoline and set her on fire during her grisly murder, according to the Chicago Sun Times. She was reportedly burned following her beating death.
Harris was left in Amierah’s care while her mother went to work.
News of baby Amierah’s death stuck a chord in Durk who slammed the child’s killer via an IG post.
“Killllllll him when y’all see em don’t call police put 9 in hiss face on my kids,” the father of three wrote.
Bernadette Madison, Amierah’s grandmother, is finding it difficult to come to terms with news of her granddaughter’s death.
“I’m still trying to absorb it all,” she told ABC 7. “I know it’s true, but again I’m still in awe and disbelief.”
Investigators, according to NBC Chicago, are questioning the mother and boyfriend.
