The 9-month-old daughter of a Kansas City Chiefs player who fatally shot the baby's mother and then himself should have just one primary caregiver, a child psychology expert testified Tuesday during a hearing to determine the girl's custody.
The mother of a Kansas City Chiefs player who killed his girlfriend and himself late last year, leaving his baby daughter an orphan, said in court Tuesday that relatives from both sides of the family should be involved in the girl's life.
"That seems like a lot of stress to put on a little person," she said.
She said research indicates that babies need a primary caregiver with whom to build a secure attachment and that having several different people caring for the girl for long periods of time could stifle that kind of bonding.
