Born premature at just 29 weeks, Jazmine Robin spent several weeks in the hospital before being released to her parents on July.3, 2018. Just 11 days later, Jazmine was brought into the hospital with “clearly inflicted head trauma.”
On May 23, the final autopsy was delivered to investigators. That report indicated baby Jazmine had a skull fracture, nine contusions to her torso, broken ribs and various traumas to her arms and legs.
The autopsy report showed that baby Jazmine had 96 total fractures, including a skull fracture, 71 rib fractures, and 23 long bone fractures, KTRK News reported.
“It makes my heart break,” said Jazmine’s great-grandmother Virginia White. She said she never got a chance to meet her great-granddaughter.
Virginia’s White’s granddaughter, Katherine White was baby Jazmine’s mother. She is charged with injury to a child by omission. The father of baby Jazmine, Jason Robin Jr., is charged with murder.
Court records revealed that about a week before Jazmine’s death, the parents said that they had to perform CPR because the infant had stopped breathing. Once Jazmine regained consciousness, the parents did NOT take the infant to the hospital.
According to a man that lived in the same house as Robin and White, he told Robin that he needed to take the infant to the hospital, but Robin refused. Jazmine was seen by a pediatrician a few days before her death also told the parents that they should take their baby to the hospital, but that they showed “no interest.”
KTRK News reports that the couple’s older son has been placed in foster care. A third child that White had since Jazmine’s death is staying with a relative.
