After further investigation, the prosecution did not have enough evidence to move forward with the case and withdrew the charges, Dauphin County Chief Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Gettle told Magisterial District Judge Kenneth Lenker at Thursday's preliminary hearing for Samantha Eary, who was known on the WWKL HOT 93.5 FM radio station as Sami Dee. She was cohost of the "Morning Madhouse with Puff & Sami Show."
Eary's attorney, Alan Ross, said after Thursday's hearing that his client's daughter, Morgan, had a linear skull fracture that medical experts say was likely the result of an accidental fall.
"No one knows what caused the injuries," he said. And no one knows when they happened, either, he added.
Since a timeline could not be established, Morgan, now 11-months-old, could have been in the care of her father, as well, when the accidental injury occurred, Eary pointed out.
Eary explained she happened to be the one who noticed a lump on the girl's head. She brought her to the doctor, at first believing it was a side effect from some shots the child had just received.
The fracture was found, and after an investigation, charges were filed against Eary in February.
The charges are now dismissed, but the situation turned Eary's life upside down.
"I lost my job, I lost my kid, my name got dragged through the mud," Eary said. "Now I have to fight to see her."
