OXFORD – The mother of a toddler strangled to death by a python will be charged in her death, along with her boyfriend.

Jaren Ashley Hare, 19, and Charles Jason Darnell, 32, will each be charged with manslaughter, third-degree murder and child abuse.

Hare’s daughter, Shaiunna Hare, was killed when Darnell’s python escaped its cage and attacked her. Darnell found her body the next morning.

Hare turned herself into the Wildwood Police Department, where Sumter County deputies met and arrested her. Darnell was already booked into jail on narcotics charges. They are both being held on $35,000 bail.
