Lawson’s daughter Kierra King, 10, vomited when given the mixture. Her son Jezaih King, 3, was given the oil and vinegar three times. On the third time, Lawson told detectives she held Jezaih’s mouth shut for about 10 minutes until he stopped breathing.
After Jezaih died, Kierra said Latisha Lawson placed him on a bed and had her view his body and pray over him.
She is charged with three counts of neglect of a dependent and two counts of battery.
