Man in Court for Shoving DCFS Worker


The Rockford man, who was one of the last people to see a murdered two year-old Kyrian Knox alive, appeared in court for a different case on Wednesday.

Kamel Harris, 41, pleaded Not Guilty to Aggravated Battery of a Government Employee.  He’s accused of shoving a Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) worker who was investigating the well-being of his baby.  The child was found safe earlier this month.

Harris remains under investigation in the case of two year-old Kyrian Knox, whose dismembered body was found in a Chicago lagoon last year.

He’s due to back in court in two weeks.
