James Harris admitted to police he killed little Amierah Roberson on Sunday at his apartment before dumping her body in a suburban park. The girl’s mother was at work during the horrendous crime.
A Chicago man beat and battered his girlfriend’s 19-month-old toddler to death Sunday before dumping the girl’s little body in a suburban park, police said Wednesday.
James Harris, 23, had been in police custody since after 5 p.m. Sunday, when his girlfriend, Jocelyn Roberson, reported her daughter missing.
Two hours earlier, a passerby reported finding the bruised and battered body of little Amierah Roberson, who had been dumped in broad daylight in a Riverdale park some 20 miles from Harris’s apartment.
Harris finally admitted to police Wednesday that he’d beaten the girl to death in his home sometime Sunday before leaving her in the wooded park.
The girl’s mother left her little tot, whom family said loved to sing and dance, with her boyfriend of seven months while the 23-year-old woman went off to work.
