Mother charged in death of 5-month-old boy
An arrest has been made in connection to the death of a 5-month-old baby.
Jasmine M Johnson, 30, has been charged with felony neglect of a dependent after officers were called to Parkview Randallia Dec. 1 when the unresponsive infant was brought to the emergency with severe bruising and head trauma. He was pronounced dead at 9:06 a.m. the same day. The doctor reported the baby had what appeared to be traumatic head injuries, pointing to depressions in the baby’s skull.
The mother, Johnson, brought the child into the ER and was interviewed by detectives. She admitted to drinking all night with another person and waking up, alone, with the child on the floor.
The case remains under investigation.
