Two More Arrests Made In Death Of 4-month-old
Police have located and arrested the father of a 4-month-old baby who was found dead at home in Lake Charles, and an additional person has been booked in connection with the incident. The mother, 25-year-old Courtney Moore, was arrested at home shortly after the warrant was obtained. Police Chief Don Dixon says they received a call to investigate a death at an apartment complex two weeks ago.
“There was a deceased 4-month-old Larry L. Champ. There were no signs of injuries. They baby was laying face down,” Dixon said.
40-year-old Larry Champ and Moore each face charges of 2nd Degree Murder. 23-year-old Danielle Allen was booked with Accessory after the fact. Dixon says disturbing toxicology results came back from the child’s autopsy.
“A lab report came back indicating that the baby had a .0475 blood alcohol content,” Dixon said.
Champ is being held on $1.2 million dollars bond, and Moore $800,000. District Attorney John DeRosier called the child’s death a tragedy.
“We in law enforcement are the warriors and spokesmen for those young children who cannot speak for themselves and cannot defend or represent themselves,” DeRosier said.
