BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) - The stepmom of 5-year-old Anna Celeste Lowe now faces 1st degree murder charges, Bossier Parish Sheriff's Investigators said Tuesday.
Catherine Murray Lowe, was first facing a charge of negligent homicide in connection to the death of little Anna Celeste.
In a news conference Tuesday afternoon, Bossier deputies say upon investigating events that led up to the child's death it was learned that Catherine Lowe was the only guardian with Anna Celeste at the time of her death.
Bossier investigators say they learned this new information through interviews with Catherine's other children. From those interviews, investigators learned that Murray-Lowe's two biological children were present sometime the day before Anna Celeste died.
Murray-Lowe allegedly followed the 5-year-old into a bathroom at their home. Shortly after, investigators say the children report hearing a loud thump and when they went to see what was going on, they reportedly found Anna Celeste lying on the floor in the bathroom in obvious pain and vomiting.
As of Tuesday afternoon, Anna Celeste's father, 32-year--old Wesley Lowe still faces a negligent homicide charge.
The Bossier Parish kindergartner died January 13 of internal bleeding caused by severe trauma.
Both Catherine and Wesley Lowe are being held at the Bossier Maximum Security Facility in Plain Dealing, Louisiana on $1 million bond each.
Investigators have said that when the child's stepmother Catherine Murray Lowe took Celeste to Willis Knighton Pierremont on the morning of January 13th, Celeste had been dead for two hours. They believe an immediate trip to the hospital could have saved her life.
Bossier Parish Sheriff's investigators say that based on the statements of Catherine's children and others they've concluded that Murray had specific intent to kill or inflict great bodily harm to Anna Celeste.
