A Georgia mother who appeared to be repeatedly dunking her 5-month-old daughter underwater on video was denied bond Thursday, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Laquanda Mosley, 27, allegedly filmed a disturbing video that went viral of her baby Sienna being held upside down and partially submerged in water.
The video, posted to Facebook by a man who identified himself as the cousin of the father, has been viewed more than 2.4 million times and shared more than 86,000 times. The video has since been taken down.
Mosley’s attorney, Paul Liston, told Channel 2 he hadn’t seen the video yet and had no information to add about the case.
When Mosley was arrested Tuesday by Griffin police, three children were placed into the custody of the Division of Family and Children Services.
She faces charges of aggravated assault with intent to murder, cruelty to children and making terroristic threats, according to police.
The baby’s father, Kevin Dandridge, told Channel 2 that Mosley was upset over money and because he asked for custody of the child. On the video, she can be heard complaining that he’s not in the child’s life.
Dandridge, who lives in Minnesota, started a GoFundMe page to raise money to make the trip to Georgia to get custody of his child.
