Three days after a Charlotte woman was charged with murdering her own 4-year-old daughter, another woman is now accused of concealing the child’s death.
WCNC Charlotte previously reported that Charlotte Mecklenburg police had charged Malikah Diane Bennett with multiple charges after investigators found the body of her daughter, Mejelic Young, in her backyard. Bennett, who is charged with murder, likely killed her daughter in September 2020. On Thursday, May 27, CMPD said they had arrested and charged another woman in the case.
53-year-old Tammy Taylor Moffett is now charged with concealing a death and accessory after the fact to murder. Exact details about her involvement were not immediately available.
Family and friends tell WCNC Charlotte Moffett was Mejelic’s grandmother.
“It’s shocking on so many levels,” said Corey Thomas, a neighbor who lives across the street from where the child’s body was found. #WakeUpCLT #CLTNews
