Mom Arrested In Child's Death June 21, 2002
Police arrested a woman Thursday because they said she ignored warnings that she not leave her child with her boyfriend, who is accused of beating the baby to death.
The 21-year-old mother, Shavon Greene, surrendered to police and was charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child.
"She's instrumental in the child's death," said Miami-Dade Police Detective Ed Munn. "She disregarded the advice of [the Department of Children & Families] and the child died as a result."
Despite warnings from a DCF investigator, Greene dropped off 21-month-old Briyonna Jean-Noel on June 5 with her boyfriend, Robert Battle, so the two could spend time together. Three days later, Briyonna was dead. Police charged Battle with first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse in the fatal beating that lacerated the baby's liver and pancreas and caused massive internal bleeding.
Briyonna's mother dropped the girl off at Battle's home on June 5 so he and the toddler could "spend time with each other because they never get to see each other and that's the only daddy she has," Greene told the investigator, according to the case file.
Battle told the police the girl started vomiting June 6, but he had not sought medical care for her. About 7 a.m. on June 8, Battle called Greene to tell her he'd had a bad dream about their future. They prayed together over the phone, and she told him to awaken Briyonna. When he returned to the phone, he said he kissed the girl and she felt cold, according to the file.
An autopsy revealed Briyonna suffered from a lacerated liver and pancreas as well as massive internal bleeding.
Battle has since been charged with first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse.
