Eric Garner's baby mother filed for a restraining order against his daughter, Erica Garner, for threatening Facebook comments she wrote.
Garner was killed when NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo used an illegal chokehold on him during a misdemeanor arrest in July 2014.
Jewel Miller, the mother of Garner's out-of-wedlock daughter Legacy, fears for her life after Garner's daughter wrote threatening Facebook comments.
Miller is locked in an ongoing feud with Garner's family over the $6.9 million settlement awarded in Garner's wrongful death suit.
A DNA test established paternity and entitled Legacy to a portion of the settlement.
“Who wanna slap jewel fa me?” Erica Garner wrote in her Facebook post. "So if your reading this post and standing next to her smack the s--- out of her and remind her she was a side piece and nothing more.”
In another Facebook post, Erica wrote, "Jewel Miller is an embarrassment to my dad’s legacy".
The two sides are scheduled to meet with Staten Island Surrogate Judge Robert Gigante next month.
The NY Daily News reports the judge took no action on Miller's request for a restraining order.
