KSAL StaffMay 18, 2016

A Dickinson County woman has been arrested in connection with the death of her baby.

Dickinson County Sheriff Gareth Hoffman tells KSAL News that deputies were called Monday night to Memorial Hospital in Abilene.  13-month-old Maddox Jones had been transported there, and was unresponsive. Maddox died at the hospital.

Hoffman says that there were visible injuries on Maddox, and that an investigation immediately began into what was determined to be a “suspicious death.” He says that an autopsy revealed internal injuries as well.

Hoffman says that as a result of the investigation Maddox’s mother, 29-year-old Jessica Stinnett, was arrested and booked into jail. The agency is requesting charges that include 1st degree murder and child abuse.

Hoffman adds that the investigation into the case is continuing.
