8-month-old baby dies after beating with a belt

An 8-month old baby died Saturday night after police say the girl’s mother and her boyfriend beat her with a belt.

Mother Shavone Whitehead and boyfriend Edward Fair Wilson are charged with aggravated battery and cruelty to children after police say the two beat Whitehead’s daughter, Kamonie Love, to the point where she had been on a ventilator to breathe,the AJC previously reported.

Love had injuries to her legs, buttocks, chin and arms. She also had multiple rib fractures, a hemorrhage and a possible skull fracture.

Whitehead initially denied she hit Love, but she later admitted to beating the baby on the legs and behind to punish her, according to records obtained by Channel 2 Action News.

In a 911 call, Wilson can be heard telling police Love “made a loud gurgling noise and then when we went to check on her she’s not responsive.” Whitehead was doing CPR to try and save her, Wilson said.
