Nigerian Woman Arrested In The US For The Murder Of Her 2-Year-Old Son

32

U.S. Marshals in Texas have apprehended a Nigerian woman accused of murdering her 2-year-old son.

Sharday Bakare was arrested by Marshals on Monday, June 17, on charges of first-degree murder, aggravated child neglect, and aggravated child abuse.

According to Shelby County court records, the Memphis Police Department (MPD) and EMTs responded to the 2600 block of Margot St. just before 6 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 4, 2023, where they found the unresponsive boy, who had bruises and was bleeding from the mouth. The child was taken to the hospital but later died.

On June 17, U.S. Marshals located Bakare at a residence in Glenn Heights, Texas. She was taken into custody without incident and is awaiting extradition to Tennessee, officials said.

Last month, Bakare’s boyfriend was charged with beating the 2-year-old to death.

Anthony Andrews was indicted by a Shelby County Grand Jury on May 9, 2024, on charges of first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse. He is currently held in the Shelby County Jail on a $250,000 bond.

According to the affidavit, the child’s mother stated that he was left in Andrews’ care while she slept. She had recently noticed bruises and marks on her son when left with Andrews, but Andrews claimed they were from the child falling out of bed.

The affidavit also mentioned that the mother witnessed Andrews hitting the child with a belt and a braided dog toy a few weeks ago.

Andrews admitted to the police that he hit the child “harder than he should have” the previous week and struck him seven or eight times in the face and back with a braided dog toy on Sunday night, throwing him into a corner of the house.

He then said he put the child in bed, after which the boy fell out and became unresponsive several minutes later.
