Longview Woman Jailed for Injury To A Child

A case of shaken baby syndrome has landed a Longview woman in jail after authorities charged her with injury to her own six month old boy. 29 year old Angelia Marie Jones is accused of inflicting injuries to her then six month old son, Joseph, who was diagnosed with severe shaken baby syndrome back in July.

Family members told police they witnessed Jones on several occasions slamming the infant on the ground and putting tape over the child's mouth to keep from hearing his cries. Joseph is in Dallas Children's Hospital, where doctors say if he survives, he could suffer permanent brain damage.

Jones remains in the Gregg County jail on $15,000 dollars bond.
