Step-Mother Charged in Boy's Death

A Longview woman could be facing the death penalty after being charged with murder in the death of her step-son. 23 year old Jennifer Lynn Yandle was arrested by Gregg County sheriff's deputies yesterday after an autopsy showed that her step-son, 2 year old James Thomas Mcgregor, had died from severe trauma to the abdomen. Yandle ammitted to officers that, in a fit of anger, she had kicked the toddler in the stomach at their Longview home on Friday. The report shows that the force of the kick ruptured the child's liver, causing his death. Friends and family of the father are shocked at the news.
