Colerain mom indicted on murder after child dies

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A Colerain Township mother who is already in prison for shaking her 3-month-old daughter in 2007, was indicted Wednesday for murder after the child died last May.

A Hamilton County jury in 2009 convicted Halloran Carr of one count of endangering children, a second degree felony. Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge William Mallory sentenced Carr to eight years in prison.  

Prosecutors say on Nov. 20, 2007, Carr grabbed Destiny Concepcion under her arms and shook the child because she wouldn't stop crying. Ten hours later, Carr summoned emergency help for the child. Paramedics found Destiny unresponsive and breathing irregularly. The child was tired, lethargic and was whimpering. A pupil was larger than the other.

Carr told paramedics that the child had hiccups and suffered from acid reflux.

A doctor at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center discovered that Destiny had blood outside her brain, lacerations of the liver and spleen and other medical problems.

Carr, who is now 30, is serving her sentence at the Dayton Correctional Institution.
