Baton Rouge Man Accused in Death of Daughter
Baton Rouge Police Detectives have arrested Terry Edwards, 32 of 11320 Greenwell Springs Rd., for the death of his daughter, Taliyah Edwards.
According to a report, Taliyah, 5 years of age, died as a result of a terminal seizure on August 22, 2013.
On April 11, 2008 Taliyah, then 3-months-old, suffered several seizures and was admitted into the Pediatric Emergency Room of Our Lady of the Lake Hospital.
After being examined, doctors observed signs of a stroke which had occurred within the last month, prior to her being examined. Doctors believe that the injuries to Taliyah were caused as a result of shaken baby syndrome.
Edwards was charged with 2nd Degree Murder and transported to EBR Parish Prison.
