BOILING SPRINGS, S.C. (AP) - The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office says a Boiling Springs woman charged with felony child abuse in the death of a 3-month-old girl in March now faces a homicide charge.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg (https://bit.ly/1J6R16V ) reports 32-year-old Katie Wheeler Harris was charged Wednesday in the death of Everly Grey Dickard. On March 30, the Spartanburg County Coroner’s Office announced Everly died from head trauma.

An incident report says the abuse took place between March 19 and 20. Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Kevin Bobo says the lead investigator on the case presented his findings to a magistrate judge, who issued the upgraded warrant. Harris turned herself in to the Spartanburg County Jail.

It is unclear if she has a lawyer.
