Two people charged with felony murder in the death of a 15-month-old boy nearly two years ago have been indicted by a Lawrence County, Alabama grand jury, according to court documents.

Jordan Ellan Harmon and Travius Sebastian Coleman were dating at the time of their April 2021 arrest in connection to the death of Harmon’s son, Emery Michael-Knox Wilson.

The toddler died in the hospital two days after he was taken from the couple’s custody.

Harmon and Coleman are accused of shaking, hitting, striking, or otherwise inflicting serious injury to the child, along with inflicting blunt force injuries on more than one occasion. Documents also say that the pair did torture, willfully abuse, cruelly beat or otherwise willfully maltreat the child.

Harmon and Coleman were both arrested in January 2022, following the release of the autopsy results. They were both charged with murder, aggravated child abuse and chemical endangerment of a child.

If convicted, each faces a minimum of 10 years up to life in prison. Both remain in jail on bonds totaling $1,680,000.
