On Thursday, April 5, 2018, Harrisburg Police conducted a Warrant Sweep for individuals with outstanding warrants.
Eve Hallman had a warrant for one count each of Endangering Welfare of Children – Parent/Guardian/Other Commits Offense and Involuntary Manslaughter.
On November 26, 2017, at approximately 4:05 a.m., Harrisburg Police responded to call on the 2400 block of Reel Street for a report of an infant not breathing. When Officers arrived on scene, they discovered a two-month old baby who was not breathing and had blood coming from his nose. Officers immediately began performing CPR until LifeTeam EMS arrived on scene and transported the infant to Harrisburg Hospital.
An investigation determined that Eve Hallman, the infant’s mother, had been co-sleeping with the infant on the couch after ingesting marijuana. While Hallman was asleep, the infant became positioned underneath Hallman and suffocated under her weight and died of complications from asphyxia. At the time of the incident, there were approximately 16 people living in the house. The residence was also observed to be filthy and unsanitary in condition.
Custody of Hallman’s other child, a one-year old, was given to her adoptive mother. Hallman was granted supervised visits and was required to follow a safety plan.
In April 2018, Harrisburg Police Detectives met with the Dauphin County District Attorney’s Office and Dauphin County Children and Youth Services to determine whether or not Hallman was completing the required steps of the safety plan required of her. Hallman was not in compliance and therefore formal charges were filed against her.
Hallman was arrested on April 5, 2018, without incident and transported to booking.
