A so-called “mother” of six children has been charged with second-degree attempted murder charges after tossing her infant daughter out of a moving car in Northern Louisiana in order to get a reaction out of her boyfriend and father of the baby.
Lasasha Allen, 23, of Winnsboro, La, allegedly sent a false text to the baby’s father saying that the child had fallen out of her vehicle. When the baby’s father did not respond to the text the way Allen wanted, she allegedly drove to a rural area on Louisiana Highway 865 and actually pushed the baby out of her passenger side door while moving at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour.
Allen told police, incredibly, that she wanted “to inflict minor damage” to her baby, so she would not be caught lying to the child’s father. Of course the baby sustained life-threatening injuries all over her body.
Allen reportedly waited awhile before transporting her child to a nearby hospital for treatment. The infant was airlifted to a trauma hospital in Shreveport, La. to undergo immediate surgery.
“This was a horrendous act, one that is beyond explanation, Franklin Parish Sheriff Kevin Cobb told KTBS TV. “I hope that everyone will pray for that child and its siblings through this ordeal.”
Allen is charged with attempted second degree murder and is currently detained at the Franklin Parish Detention Center. She is being held on $750,000 bail. Allen’s injured child and her five other children have been placed in the custody of Child Services, said Sheriff Kevin Cobb.
“One thing is certain, the child is in a safer place today than in the hands of the mother. Justice can’t move quickly enough in this,” Cobb added.
Following the surgery, the baby was in a stable condition.
