Catoosa County: DA wants to retry former foster mom on murder charge

clara edwards child abuse case

It’s been nearly two weeks since a Catoosa County jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict on murder in the trial of a Ringgold woman accused in the death of her foster daughter.

Now prosecutors are looking to retry the charge.

On Feb. 18 a jury of seven women and five men split 10-2 on a felony murder charge after 11 hours of deliberations over a three-day span.

The jury did, however, find 60-year-old Clara Louise Edwards guilty of child cruelty — but not guilty of malice murder — in the death of 23-month-old Saharah Weatherspoon, her foster child.
