According to the announcement made by Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg, a mother from Houston was given a life sentence for fatally beating her newborn daughter.
Monday, April 3, Tradezsha Trenay Bibbs, 29, was found guilty of felony murder in the death of Brielle Robinson, who was four months old at the time, on April 16, 2016.
Bibbs had been found guilty of capital murder previously, but the verdict was overturned and he was tried again.
When authorities were summoned to the Red Carpet Inn on the Gulf Freeway in 2016, they discovered Bibbs and Brielle sharing a room.
Bibbs told officials she heard her daughter crying and picked her up by the arms and dropped her on the bed, causing her to fall to the ground, according to court documents filed at the time. After that, Bibbs is said to have struck her daughter repeatedly in the legs, chest, ribs, and face until the child stopped crying.
Brielle was later taken to Texas Children’s Hospital, where doctors discovered that she had suffered severe head trauma and multiple fractures.
Court records show that Bibbs initially told authorities that Brielle had fallen to the ground from her car seat, but later admitted that he had made up that story. She let police know that subsequent to looking into the inn with the baby, a couple of hours after the fact she began not to think often about the kid’s prosperity, and over and over dropped her on the sleeping cushion and “popped” her in the face.
Bibbs told the police that she repeatedly punched the baby in the chest and ribs until the baby stopped crying, but she called 911 when the baby stopped breathing.
Keaton Forcht, an assistant district attorney, stated that Bibbs killed her daughter because the baby’s father no longer desired a relationship with the mother.
During the trial, which lasted a week, jurors heard testimony that emergency room doctors said that Bibbs didn’t seem to care about the baby’s health or the consequences of the fatal head injury she caused.
Forcht stated, “Bibbs deserved a life sentence for what she did to her child.” She beat her numerous times and appeared to be as concerned about her daughter’s death as she was about her daughter’s life.”
“Our office remains standing for all casualties, however a child is the most blameless of casualties,” Ogg said. ” We accepted that a lifelong incarceration was proper for this merciless homicide and a Harris District jury concurred.”
