“The mother asked if she was going to jail, if she was going to be arrested,” Shaddix told Channel 2 Action News. “The detective said we don’t know at this time but we are still investigating you need to come up here and her response was I’m not coming up there if I’m going to be arrested.”
An arrest warrant has been issued for Murphy on charges of reckless conduct and cruelty to children. The children were placed in DFACS custody.
Murphy told Channel 2 she has been falsely accused and that she left the children with an adult. “I didn’t go to the police station because I wanted to first get legal representation,” she said.
Anyone with information on Murphy’s whereabouts is asked to contact police.
