    & then lied.

    On the June day 1-year-old Skylar Fowler died, temperatures hovered around 90 degrees in metro Atlanta. Skylar was the first child to die from heat in a vehicle this year in Georgia, and the 23rd in the US.

    Dijanelle Fowler is charged with second degree murder, child cruelty and concealing the June 15 death of Skylar Fowler, 1, according to warrants obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The child was found dead in an Emory University Hospital parking deck ( 8 miles away in Atlanta traffic, & 54 minutes later ) when the mother went there and dialed 911.

    Police said they don’t believe Fowler intended to harm the child. She left the air conditioning running, but when she finally emerged the car had shut off.

    Fowler had a hair appointment in the Northlake Tower Festival Shopping Center in the Tucker area at 10 a.m. Footage shows her enter at 10:06 a.m. and later emerge at 4 p.m., the warrants say.

    Witnesses confirmed she never left the salon. In the parking lot, Fowler couldn’t start the car and got a man at the hair dresser’s to assist.

    The good Samaritan didn’t see the baby because, police believe, Fowler covered her up with clothes that were in the car or hid her in some other way.

    Police allege Fowler didn’t mention the child and instead said that she herself was “having a seizure of some kind.” When officers arrived, Skylar was unresponsive in the back seat.

    The medical examiner’s office believes she had been dead for “some period of time.”

    Prosecutor: Mom told hairdresser ‘no rush’ as baby died in hot car

    The 25-year-old mother accused of leaving her baby daughter in a car to die during a summer hair appointment was denied bond Friday in DeKalb County.

    Dijanelle Fowler is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 1-year-old Skylar Fowler. Prosecutor Dalia Racine told the court there was no question the child died while the mother got her hair braided at a Lavista Road salon on June 15.

    Testing shows the temperature in the car rose to 129 degrees, the heat index more than 150, Racine said.

    Fowler was reportedly inside the salon for five and a half hours.

    “No rush,” she told the hairdresser, according to Racine. “Take your time.”

    The child’s father, Louis Williams II, joined with the prosecution in asking that bond be denied. Williams, an Air Force reservist who left court quickly, previously told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution he had chosen to forgive Fowler but didn’t want to comment on the charges.

    It was Williams, who had been deployed in the Middle East when his daughter died, who told investigators Fowler had confessed to him. She had previously given several false accounts of what happened, a detective testified in a previous hearing.

    They need to make an example' | Father wants justice for child's hot car death
    Louis Williams clings to memories of his 1-year-old daughter. He learned while deployed overseas that she died sitting in a hot car for more than six hours while her mom was at a DeKalb County hair salon

    interview with dad, how he learned that Dejanelle was faking seizures & the baby's death was not an accident.

    "They need to make an example. Something like this can't happen, for a mother to leave her child in the car for six hours while she gets her hair done...she's told multiple lies," said Williams "I'd like for this case to make a statement so parents out there who are going through tough times don't neglect their children."

    The DeKalb County District Attorney's Office says Dijanelle Fowler is expected enter a guilty plea in court Wednesday morning.

    ‘She baked my daughter’: Dad wants punishment for mom in hot-car death


    Louis Williams II is frantic, speeding toward Wednesday morning when, he fears, a great error could occur in court.

    His ex-girlfriend is expected to plead guilty in the death of their daughter, Skylar, a 1-year-old who died of the summer heat in a car while the mother was getting her hair done at a DeKalb County salon last June 15. The father said the prosecutor told him Dijanelle “DJ” Fowler will likely get 13 years in prison and seven years on parole, a sentence that could make her eligible for parole well before 13 years if she behaves.

    That would be far too short for Williams. Williams doesn't have an alternative sentence in mind, but he thinks the one proposed is simply not long enough and won’t send a strong enough message to other parents about the consequences of neglect.

    ulgh - MO at least 50 years too little

    Mom gets 15 years in prison for letting baby die in hot car

    Dijanelle Fowler, the mother who left her 1-year-old daughter to die in a hot car while getting her hair done last June, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in DeKalb County on Wednesday.

    Despite appeals by the District Attorney’s office and family of the child’s father, the 25-year-old received a 20-year sentence with 15 years in prison for leaving the child in the car more than five hours. She will also receive credit for time served.

    “I’m not here to seek revenge,” Judge Linda Hunter said, looking toward the family of Skylar Fowler’s father. “A judge’s job is not to send a message.”
