Johnson is the child’s mother. Bond was set at $500,000.00.

Johnson gave no motive for the alleged abuse.
There is something wrong in this country. There are too many cases of child abuse and infanticide is on the rise. Whether we need to focus more on the mental health of our citizens or the overall well-being of mothers with young children. Something is wrong here. . .
