On November 22, 2017, LMPD detectives arrived at Harris' home and found the child dead.

A suspect in the case and Beasley's boyfriend, Erin Smith-Spencer, told police he'd disciplined the baby two days before her death. Spencer was charged with complicity to murder and criminal abuse of a child 12 or under in November 2017. Beasley now faces the same charges.

The coroner's office ruled the two-year-old girl died of blunt force trauma.
