East Texas infant's death being investigated as homicide

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

East Texas authorities are investigating after an infant's death was ruled as a homicide.

An autopsy report revealed that 4-month-old Ja'Kavieonna Elliot of Longview died of blunt force trauma to the head. The infant also had previous fractures to her skull and ribs.

"Initially in that area it did not look real suspicious as far as a crime at this time, but that's why an autopsy was done to determine if there was anything foul play," said Gregg County Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace B.H. Jameson.

The infant was hospitalized February 21 and later died from her injuries.

Police say no one has been listed as a suspect in the case.
