Makaylia is a 20 year old with two children – her fb says their names are Princeton Kash and Khalysie La’Shay. I believe both babies were young – Khalysie was 8 weeks old and according to her FB, Princeton was an infant in June 2021. So maybe under one year apart or close to that?
On May 12, 2022, calls started flooding into 911 in the area. The Pearl Police Dept made this post:
“Several 911 calls came in to Pearl Police at 2 p.m. Thursday, May 12, saying a woman had repeatedly and forcibly thrown a baby on the roadway at 775 N. Bierdeman Rd.”
When police arrived, they found Makaylia holding a horrifically injured 8 week old Khalysie. They quickly took the baby to hospital. Makaylia tried to flee into nearby woods but was quickly apprehended.
“We shut the city of Pearl down,” Police Chief Dean Scott said, according to WAPT. “She was heavily escorted, I’ll say that.” “At this point, all we can do is say a prayer for the child. The Good Lord figures this baby is too good for this world. The act was very deliberate and intentional.”
Khalysie remained in hospital for days and passed away on Saturday May 14, 2022 at 4.33pm. Makayla has been charged with capital murder and the death penalty will be sought.
Police have said that Makaylia has showed no remorse for her actions. “[Khalysie] was the victim of a very cruel, intentional abuse by her mother,” Police Chief Scott said, according to WLBT. “I would encourage people, the Facebook judge and jury, to feel sympathy for the victim.”
The police chief has also said that narcotics and patrol officers are ‘very familiar’ with Makaylia.
A neighbor of Makaylia’s spoke to the media.
“I don’t understand,” said the woman, who did not want to be identified. “Something had to go wrong. Postpartum, or something. Because she really is a very good mother. I don’t understand what happened.”
