Her 3-year-old sister remains in the hospital in critical condition at last report, with her biological father maintaining a vigil at her bedside. The mother, 25-year-old Lakeisha Marie Jones has been charged with two counts of child deprivation for not reporting the ongoing abuse.

  1. They both need a beating since a innocent child had to get beaten to death. Sad excuse for a parent to let this go on.

  3. There is a lot of accountability and responsibility being a social worker sometimes we as well as other helping professionals are mot professionally not morally equipped to hold these positions s.With that being said,documentation condultation,going over and beyond in the line of duty is a must.I emphatize with the two state worker because we all know that sometimes there are mot adequate resources to do your job but at the same time you are the one responsible for any mishaps.

  4. Shouldn’t the charge be up graded to 1st degree murder since she died from a beating?
