Woman Throws Baby Out Window: Baby Dies In Window Toss, The woman charged with murder for allegedly tossing her 6-month-old daughter from the sixth-floor window of a Bronx apartment building was licensed to run a day care from her home and city agencies referred children to her care, health officials confirm to NBC 4 New York.
Tenisha Fearon, 27, asked to stop operating the day care in late April and her license expired, a source familiar with the situation said. Health officials do not believe there were any children in her care in the months since her accreditation elapsed.
“Tenisha Fearon was a registered family day care provider from 2013 to 2015 with no complaints or violations,” Steve Flamisch, a spokesman for the New York State Office of Children and Family Services, said in a statement. “Her registration expired on April 30 and she did not apply for renewal. Her program is closed.”
A naked Fearon, according to witnesses, dangled her own baby, Janillah Lawrence, from the window of her Tiebout Avenue building in Fordham Heights Thursday before throwing her to the pavement 60 feet below as her other three children watched in “horror,” prosecutors said. Police and ESU, responding to multiple 911 calls after the 2 p.m. window-toss, had to break the apartment door down to get to Fearon, and encountered her screaming and still wearing no clothes, they said.
The superintendent of the building, George Maldanado, said Fearon had an argument with someone next door and the baby was out the window within minutes. He said he had tried to calm Fearon down but “she wouldn’t listen to me.
Maldanado helped the first responding officer lift the broken baby from the ground after she hit the pavement in a desperate effort to see if she could be saved.
“We put her down and she was dead already,” Maldanado said. “You hold a dead baby in your hand … see how you feel.”
The baby was taken to Saint Barnabas Hospital with traumatic injuries, firefighters said. She died there later in the afternoon, according to police.
Neighbors React to Mother Accused of Throwing Baby From Window A 6-month-old baby girl died Thursday afternoon after police and witnesses say her naked mother dangled her from the window of an apartment building in the Bronx before throwing her to the pavement six stories below.

Three more of Fearon’s children — ages 4, 8 and 10 — were in the apartment at the time the baby went out the window, police said. Law enforcement sources say one of the children told police what the mother allegedly did; the others were too shocked to speak. They are now in the care of ACS.
Law enforcement sources say the family was about to get evicted from their apartment.
Gregorio Lopez, a neighbor, said he thought Fearon would throw the other children out the window as well. He said the baby was tossed from the window after Fearon had an incident with her brother.
“Her brother is in the hallway, saying, ‘God helps us, God help us.’ So it started from there,” Lopez said. “Once he disappeared, she went in and took those actions.”
Law enforcement sources also say Fearon made incriminating statements to police before asking for an attorney; the name of that attorney wasn’t immediately available.
