NOW: Balloon release held to remember three people, including 2-year-old girl killed in New Year’s Eve crash

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Loved ones are mourning three people killed in a New Year's Eve crash in the KK River.

"Everybody loved her. Real easy to get along with. A silly girl," one family member said.

The fiance of 2-year-old Annamelia Hernandez's grandfather spoke to CBS 58 News.

Annamelia was killed along with her pregnant mother Shannan Nehmer.

Police say Charles Barefield was driving to get away from officers when the car went into the Kinnikinnic River.

Police say Nehmer and Barefield were involved in two armed robberies before the crash.

"She loved her child, she really did. I want them not to think she didn't. I think that's what hurts the most as a mother as well how you think that you don't love your baby," said Amanda Santa Anna, Fiance of Child's Grandfather.

A balloon released was held at the scene of the crash on Friday night to remember the victims.
