Shaken Baby Expected To Survive

An 18-month-old Tyler baby, who police say was shaken by his mother, is expected to survive.

Demonte Verdell is now in stable condition and is improving. He had been in critical condition for the past 2.5 weeks.

His mother, Vickie Lane Jones, 20, remains in the Smith County Jail, charged with injury to a child.

Police say she took her unconscious baby to the hospital last month and said he fell off the bed. But doctors found evidence of child abuse.
