ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The mother of a 3-year-old girl prosecutors now say was murdered by the woman's boyfriend is speaking out.

Porscha Harper was at work December 26th when her daughter Camyria Arnold was rushed to a hospital.

She died the next day.

Harper says she's still grieving over her daughter's death. Learning that investigators think the girl was murdered makes it even tougher to deal with.

"Everyone is still grieving from this, all sides of the family - my side, her father's side. My heart hasn't healed. I don't think it will ever heal because this is my child. There's still a large piece of this puzzle that don't make sense. But I know I was good mother to my kids," Harper said.

The child's father told us he was trying to get custody of Camyria when she died.

Harper claims that's not true.

She wouldn't talk about Rico Jones, the man in jail charged with killing Camyria, other than to say he is the father of one of her kids and she wouldn't have left her kids in his care if she thought they would have been in danger.

She says investigators haven't told her why they charged Jones with murder.
