    'The Phoenix Fire Department says the adult victim is a 20-year-old female who is in extremely critical condition.'

    The article also says the emergency caller said the baby was 'alert and crying' and it's not known if it was shot. But it's an earlier one than the first article I posted, which confirms the baby was shot. Just hoping the baby recovers with no permanent damage. I fear for the (mom?) young woman shot in the head though.

    The mom was only 19, and her and the baby were not shot in their home, they were found at the side of a wash.

    'She was pronounced dead at a local hospital. Police have identified her as Khalli Lawrence, 19.

    Lawrence's infant daughter was reportedly shot in the leg. Howard said the child is improving and is expected to survive.

    The mother and baby were found on a footpath along a wash.

    "An area resident heard a baby crying," Howard said. "He looked down and saw a woman laying on the ground with a baby next to her. He found that they appeared to be injured, both of them, called the police department, called the fire department." '

    So did someone have this woman and baby in a vehicle, shoot them, and push them out? Or was this a woman just walking with her baby and was a victim of a random attacker? Whatever it was, it sounds as though it was lucky the passerby heard the baby and called emergency, otherwise there might have been two fatalities. Someone shot a baby and left it to die here. They need to be caught. I think there is a clue to what happened in what police have said:

    'Police do not believe there is cause for alarm for area residents.'

    Oh heck. Khalli's ONLY 'perfect gift' that she wanted and needed for her baby were two nurser bottles.

    Her baby is only two months old.

    The path they were found along was in Ahwatukee. Has anyone come across her Facebook?

    'Police said Lawrence lived in the Valley, but not near the crime scene.'

    It looks like those are baby accessories or equipment scattered in the road there? I'm guessing all that stuff would not have been carried by a mom just out for a walk (especially as she didn't live nearby). So it kind of leads to the conclusion Khalli was thrown out of her own car, along with her baby and the baby's stuff - or the perp had that baby stuff in his car, and wanted to get rid of anything connecting him/her to the crime.

    Just my opinion, I think someone very, very close to mom and baby probably committed this dreadful crime. The quicker police can name a suspect they're looking for, the quicker people will report where that person is, I think.

    Can't find any updates since December.

    Police have not yet made any arrests, nor have they named any suspects. What's also a mystery, is how Lawrence and the baby ended up in this Ahwatukee neighborhood near 18th Avenue and Liberty Lane.

    “Most of her friends are in Mesa or Tempe, so it was a shock to us she would be in that area,” Alexander said. “She didn't have any friends in that area, didn't live there before, not in that area.”

    Is it known who the baby's father is?

    To have scattered baby accessories in the road and shot an infant, it sounds as though someone was angry that Khalli had the baby. Someone also wanted distance between himself/herself and the victims, it seems.

    Didn't know if I should post there was a pending assault case with defendant name's same as deceased......pretty darn sure LE must be looking into the connection. You can look it up in county record. There was an appearance during the week she was shot. Minute entries indicate that the case of course is dismissed.

    Police said the 19-year-old mother shot with her baby in December was killed by the child's father, a former juvenile probation officer whom the victim met while she was detained in a Maricopa County juvenile facility, according to court documents...

    Smith, 30, has denied he committed the crime.

    Smith worked in Maricopa County's juvenile probation department and was fired from his job after authorities received multiple complaints about his conduct with minor females at the juvenile facility, records show.
    http://azdailysun.com/news/state-and...335d879d1.html

    A man accused in the fatal shooting of a 19-year-old woman in Ahwatukee and the wounding of her baby has pleaded not guilty.

    Maricopa County prosecutors say 30-year-old Allyn Smith entered his plea Wednesday. His initial pretrial conference is scheduled for April 15.

    Smith surrendered to authorities on Feb. 10 and was jailed on suspicion of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder and child abuse.

    "Smith and Lawrence started dating in 2013 after he separated from a longtime girlfriend with whom he has a 3-year-old son, records show.

    Lawrence filed for child support last year after her child was born, court records show. By that time, Smith had returned to his ex-girlfriend and didn't want anything to do with the child he fathered with Lawrence, police said. Multiple witnesses told investigators Smith had threatened to kill Lawrence if she sought child support."

    ''Smith was with Lawrence in October when a man approached, punched her repeatedly and knocked her down, court records show. Police said Smith made no attempt to stop the assault. Lawrence believed Smith was responsible for the attack in an effort to force her to have a miscarriage, according to court records."

    "Police said witnesses also placed Smith at Lawrence's apartment on Dec. 11, the day of the murder. Investigators obtained a partial receipt and video of Smith purchasing a .22 caliber handgun earlier that morning.

    Smith told authorities he had sold the gun and was at his sister's house the morning of the killing, but did not have an alibi for the two-hour window between leaving his sister's and arriving in the East Valley to take a court-ordered paternity test, records show."

    From last month:

    Man accused of shooting Valley woman, infant rejects plea agreement

    A man accused of killing a 19-year-old Valley woman and wounding her infant has rejected the plea agreement, according to a Maricopa County Superior Court spokesman.

    Allyn Smith, 32, appeared in court Friday for a change of plea hearing. A court spokesman didn't know the terms of the rejected plea agreement.

    The case heads to trial next month.
    http://www.azfamily.com/story/345272...to-change-plea

    A spokesperson for the County Attorney's Office declined to comment on whether prosecutors had reached a plea agreement with Smith, but the victim's family is convinced that he will enter a plea Friday that avoids the death penalty.

    "He took her life so he should pay with his. Why should his family be able to go to the jail to see him?" the victim's aunt, Latonya McFalls, said Thursday. "We have to go to a grave site to visit Khalli."

    McFalls said prosecutors had assured her family for months they would pursue the death penalty, only to abruptly change course last week. Lead prosecutor Jessi Wade did not respond to questions about the case.

    McFalls said she and other family members felt "blindsided" by the decision.

    "We want the court to show him the same mercy that he showed Khalli and Ki'yah, which is none," she said. "He left a newborn baby, his baby, in a park for a stranger to find. He left them for dead."
