According to the Chattanooga Times Free Press (, police have charged Rhasean Lowry with criminal homicide and abuse in the Aug. 27 death of Tatiana Emerson.

The newspaper reports Lowry told police the child fell down some steps, but a child abuse specialist told investigators that the girl couldn’t have died in the way he described. The expert said she was beaten.

Lowry remained jailed on Tuesday at the Hamilton County jail. It wasn’t immediately clear whether he has an attorney.
