Northampton County Woman Charged With First Degree Murder  

GREENVILLE – Agents with the SBI charged a Northampton mother with the murder of her child, earlier today.  Agents served the warrant for first degree murder while the woman was in custody at the Northampton County jail.  The new charge prompted the magistrate to withhold any bond.  
Sherika Danielle Norwood, 26, of Seaboard was previously charged with felony child abuse inflicting serious injury after her four year old son was found deceased at the family residence.  The investigation of Rakeem Tyrone Norwood’s death continued and autopsy results prompted the charge, after consultation with the District Attorney’s office.  

The homicide investigation was jointly conducted by the Seaboard PD, Northampton County Sheriff’s Office and the SBI.  

A photo of Sherika Danielle Norwood was not available at the time of this release.
