Body of Infant Found, Mother Charged

web posted November 30, 2018

EDGEFIELD - Vernita LaShawn Jones, 25, of Clewiston, Florida had been staying in  Johnston, SC with her 6-month old son, Anthony Frost.  Over the weekend, police had received a tip that a woman had dumped a baby's body in a dumpster.

Police began an investigation and soon arrested Jones, who according to law enforcement, admitted suffocating the child.  The search for the child led authorities to a landfill in Greenville County, where they recovered a baby boy's body Thursday morning.

Jones has been charged with homicide by child abuse, and is being held without bond.
