Virginia Man Arrested After Delaying Medical Help for Girlfriend’s 2-Year-Old Daughter’s Severe Burns
A 38-year-old Virginia man named John Tucker Hardee was arrested after reportedly delaying medical help for his girlfriend’s two-year-old daughter, Harley Williams, who suffered from severe burns for several hours before her tragic death.
During the investigation, the Virginia man’s girlfriend, Shelby Love, revealed that she often left her daughter with him whenever she went to work, but she never thought she would come home seeing her daughter with severe burns due to hot water.
According to Love, the Virginia man refused to call for medical help despite her daughter’s severe burns and bad conditions because he was afraid that he would go to prison and insisted on treating Harley’s burns by themselves, leading to the 2-year-old girl’s death.
