The Brookhaven woman accused of killing her 8-month-old daughter will be in court seeking to be released from jail on bond on Nov. 16, according to the DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office.
Shavone Whitehead, 25, and her boyfriend Edward Fair Wilson, 33, are both charged with felony murder, cruelty to children and aggravated battery in the Aug. 1 death of Kamonie Whitehead.
Wilson has already been denied bond, according to a press release from the DA’s office.
Brookhaven police charged the couple with felony murder Aug. 30. Autopsy results show that Kamonie Whitehead, the 8-month-old infant, had been severely beaten and died from traumatic brain injury.
Whitehead and Wilson had been staying at the Microtel Inn and Suites on Corporate Boulevard in Brookhaven when police responded Aug. 1 to a call of a child not breathing. The officers and medics were able to revive Kamonine and she was transported to Eggleston Children’s Hospital. Officers reported they noticed bruising on the child and charged Whitehead and Wilson with cruelty to children.
Kamonie died two weeks later due to her injuries, on Aug. 13, at the hospital.
