Longview Stepmom Investigated for Other Abuse

A Longview woman charged with the murder of her two year old stepson had been investigated for previous child abuse instances. 23 year old Jennifer Lynn Yandle admitted Friday that in a fit of anger, she kicked her two year old stepson, James Thomas McGregor, in the stomach. He suffered severe blunt trauma from the kick and died. A spokesman for C.P.S. told a local paper, Yandle's stepson has been the subject of three other physical abuse or neglect allegations. Yandle remains in jail on first degree murder charges.
