A man and woman have been charged in the death of their prematurely born daughter, who was killed just days after she was brought home from the hospital, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg announced Monday.

Jason Paul Robin, 24, was charged with murder and Katharine Wyndham White, 21, was charged with injury to a child by omission in the death of their daughter, Jazmine Robin.

The 10-week-old died on July 15, 2018, just 12 days after she was brought home. An autopsy showed that she died from being struck in the head. She had bruises on her face and scalp and 96 fractures, including 71 rib fractures and a cracked skull.

“The evidence shows that Baby Jazmine fell victim to the very people who were supposed to protect her the most in this world,” Ogg said. “After a full and thorough investigation of the facts, we have filed charges, and will seek justice for young Jazmine,” Attorney Ogg says.

Houston police detectives were called to Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital by staff who said the child had “clearly inflicted head trauma.”

According to prosecutors, the day before her death, Robin awoke at 2:00 a.m. to feed Jazmine, but the baby refused the bottle at first. After several minutes of feeding, Robin said he noticed her go limp, so he claimed he performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on her after which she appeared normal.

Robin said Baby Jazmine then fell asleep "smooth, fast, faster than I ever seen."

She was taken to the hospital by Robin and White that afternoon reportedly after two feeding sessions followed abnormal behavior that Robin said scared him.


A family friend that was living with Robin and White admitted to officers that neither of the two took his advice of taking Baby Jazmine to the emergency room after she choked on her bottle and flat lined less than a week before she died.

Baby Jazmine's pediatrician also suggested they take her to the emergency room upon noticing bruising around her eyes after her July 10, 2018 check-up.

During an interview, Robin told investigators that while the child was having trouble feeding, she "started acting weird and went limp," according to court records. He told investigators that he blew in her mouth and pumped her chest twice, according to court records. After that, Robin told authorities she started acting normally again.
While chest compression can cause rib fractures, I find it hard to believe that "two pumps" could cause 71 separate rib fractures, even without specialized Infant CPR training - and did he even bother to check to see if she had a pulse before performing chest compressions?
Mouth to mouth breathing support is for someone who's got a pulse (meaning also a heartbeat!) but is unable ATM to breath on their own; whereas CPR, which includes chest compressions, is for someone who's dead, ie: not breathing and without a detectable pulse/heartbeat.

Did they ignore the visiting friend's advice to get her to the hospital after she supposedly flat-lined a week before her death, and the pediatrician's suggestion to take her to the ER after her check up because they feared the injuries would be discovered?

I've seen less bone fracture trauma in accident fatalities where the victim was thrown from their vehicle and it then rolled over/landed on them, than in the monstrous amount of fractures that this tiny newborn suffered.

I was in a high impact car crash a few weeks ago, got t-boned then pushed into a crash barrier. Guess how many broken bones and fractures I got? That's right, none. Now I know a little baby is a lot more fragile than my old ass but come on, 96 breaks? That little treasure was probably in pain most if not all of her ten weeks on this planet. Pieces of shit.
