Jason Robin, 24, is believed by investigators to have violently shaken infant Jazmine after her crying angered him.

Jazmine died just days after leaving hospital and cops have also accused the mother, Katherine Wyndham White, of injury by omission – failing to act to protect her.

Jazmine was 10 weeks old when she died on July 15, 2018, 12 days after leaving a Houston hospital.

Detectives were called to the hospital after staff found evidence of “clearly inflicted head trauma”, read a police report.

“The evidence shows that baby Jazmine fell victim to the very people who were supposed to protect her the most in this world”

It stated that “a minimum of two traumatic events resulted in 96 fractures.”

An autopsy revealed that the girl’s death was caused by blunt force trauma to the head.

Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said: “The evidence shows that baby Jazmine fell victim to the very people who were supposed to protect her the most in this world.

“After a full and thorough investigation of the facts we have filed charges and will seek justice for young Jazmine.”

Jason Robin’s own parents released a statement saying that Robin and White both had “violent tempers”.

Robin told police that he read psychology books in an effort to control his anger.

He claimed Jazmine was “too beautiful to hit”.

The police report said that White blamed baby Jazmine’s head injuries on the CPR provided to her for around an hour.

She reportedly later claimed that another woman living at the residence was to blame for the injuries.

Robin’s parents Myka and Jason told ABC13: “I really don’t know what to say except we told them they were toxic for each other, we tried to get them to split up.

“They both had violent tempers but we never imagined this would happen. We lost a beautiful, strong angel who fought so hard to come home.”
