Mother cleared of charges in daughter’s death

Scales of justice and gavel

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The mother whose child died after she was accidentally left in an SUV in the heat of summer will not face charges.

Jefferson County District Attorney Brandon Falls says Katie Luong will not face criminal charges in the death of her 11-month-old daughter, Gabriella Gi-Ny Luong. The child was found unresponsive in an SUV in July of 2013.  Neighbors said a citizen performed CPR on the girl until paramedics could arrive to transport her to Children’s of Alabama. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Falls says he looked at the entire event as he tried to determine whether to charge Katie. He says they examined numerous possible charges.
