A Houston mother named Jasmine Jones, 21, is charged with two counts of serious bodily injury to a child by omission. Prosecutors may also charge her with accessory to murder after her boyfriend allegedly KILLED her 3-year-old son.
Her boyfriend Andre Young is expected to be charged with the murder of 3-year-old Jaycion, who was NOT his child.
Here's what happened. Police say that Andre spanked Jaycion with his hand and a belt. Afterward Jasmine noticed markings on his bottom and applied cream to help them heal. Then she left the toddler alone with Andre while she worked on Sunday and Monday.
On Monday, Jaycion complained of a stomach ache and started throwing up that evening, according to police. Instead of taking him to the hospital, Jasmine tried to treat the vomiting by giving him salt water, soda and home remedies. She did not seek medical treatment, according to the complaint.
Jaycion later died of internal injuries that police claim came from the beatings he received from Andres.
