LANCASTER – Police say a Lancaster woman fatally beat her 1-year-old daughter earlier this month and then disposed of the girl’s body.
Shondraya Dickson was charged Saturday with homicide, abuse of a corpse, endangering a child, assault and obstructing a child-abuse report in the death of Ja’Zirah Rodgers.
The 23-year-old remained jailed without bail Monday and could not be reached for comment. Online court records did not include information on her lawyer.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Feb. 3.
Police tell LNP (http://bit.ly/15B0ymx ) no one saw the girl alive after Jan. 2. They say Dickson gave conflicting accounts to social workers about the girl’s whereabouts. A body hasn’t been recovered.
Officials say Dickson’s two other young children are in custody of Lancaster County’s Children and Youth office.
