Murder charges have been filed against a man in the apparent beating death of his girlfriend’s 1-year-old daughter.
James Harris, 23, of Chicago is accused of killing Amierah Roberson over the weekend.
Authorities say the Amierah died from head trauma.
The toddler’s body was found over the weekend in a park in south suburban Riverdale. A few hours before her mother reported her missing.
The family says the mother spent the night at Harris’ home and left Ameirah there on Sunday when she went to work.
When she returned from work, the girl was gone.
Investigators have not said how they believe Harris killed the girl.
