North Carolina mother Jeanie Ditty, 23, and her boyfriend Zachary Keefer, 30, were arrested last week for the murder of Ditty’s 2-year-old daughter Macy Grace. According to the Fayette Observer, a distraught Ditty reached out to photographer Sunny Jo two days after Macy’s death to ask him to create “angelic” photos of the toddler for her.
Jo offers a “one more time” service where he superimposes a dead loved one onto photos for clients. When Ditty approached him and offered to pay the $500 fee, he waived it because she was so upset. He can’t “sleep since [the murder charges] happened,” he told PEOPLE. “The only thing that helps me out is me thinking I didn’t do it for Jeanie I did it for the spirit of Macy. The only thing I was trying to do was help a grieving mother. I just wanted to make someone happy who was going through a tough time.”
According to ArmyTimes, Ditty, who serves as a chemical, biological, radiation and nuclear specialist for the military, brought Macy to a local emergency room on Dec. 4 of last year. Macy had “bruises all over her body” and “life-threatening injuries consistent with child abuse.” She died a few days later.
ABC 11 reports warrants for Ditty and Keefer’s arrests were issued last week because the county medical examiner officially ruled then that Macy’s death was a homicide. Ditty was arrested immediately — Keefer went missing for a few days but then turned himself in to the Cumberland County Detention Center. They are both charged with first-degree murder and negligent child abuse, and are being held without bond.
