Mother Arrested for Strangling Her Child

On September 3, 2017 officers with the Oxford Police Department were dispatched to Laurel Cove for a reported assault. Upon arrival officers made contact with a male and female juvenile who reported that their mother strangled her juvenile son. Officers were able to contact relatives and ask them to come to the scene so the kids could leave for the night. The mother who was identified as Shona Johnson, 38 of Oxford, was transported to the Oxford Police Department and interviewed by investigators where she admitted to strangling her son in the bathroom.

Ms. Johnson was taken into custody then transported to the Lafayette County Detention Center. She was given a bond of $50,000. The victim did not require medical attention.  The Local Voice Ligature
