Shelter resident charged with attempted murder of toddler sonPosted: Updated:
Residents at the Coachman Family Center in White Plains are speaking out after a former resident was charged with attempted murder of her toddler son.
Police say 29-year-old La-Quanaya Ward tried to drown her two-year-old until another resident intervened and rescued the child last Wednesday.
The mother is also accused of threatening to hurt her other child.
Some are now blaming the building's security and case workers, alleging that the cameras in the building are not regularly checked.
A resident from the Coachman Family Center says the building is ridden with bugs and rodents. They say the food is also expired.
News 12 has reached out to the Coachman Family Center and is waiting to hear back.
Ward's children have now been placed in emergency foster care.
