Houston Infant Dies With 90-Plus Fractures; Parents Charged

The parents of a Houston infant have been charged in her death after an autopsy found the child suffered a cracked skull and more than 90 fractures just days after being brought home from the hospital in July 2018.

Harris County prosecutors said Monday that Jazmine Robin, who was born prematurely, was 10-weeks-old when she died July 15 and had only been home from the hospital for 12 days.

According to a report by KPRC-TV in Houston, an autopsy report said the child had five contusions to her face and 10 to her scalp. She had nine more on her torso, five trauma areas on her right arm, six on her left leg and three on her right leg.

Her father, 24-year-old Jason Paul Robin, is charged with murder. Her mother, 21-year-old Katharine Wyndham White, faces a count of injury to a child by omission.

Robin was being held Tuesday in the Harris County Jail. It's not clear if he has an attorney to speak on his behalf.

White was not listed on the jail roster, and a working phone number for her couldn't be found.
