Mother Charged With Murder Pleads Not Guilty

On Wednesday afternoon, a mother answered to charges she killed her four-year-old adoptive daughter.

34-year-old JessIlyn Robinson was arrested last week in Clark County.

Investigators say she told them her daughter, Faith, died after falling in the bathtub back in May, but police say the girl's autopsy showed she died from injuries consistent with violent shaking.

Robinson stands charged with wanton murder.

She pleaded not guilty in court on Wednesday. She's being held on a $250,000 cash bond in the Clark County Detention Center.

    Thank you Chris, for your positive comments. I know the family well, and yes, it is disturbing to see the hate-filled lynch mob mentality that is so prevalent in this country. Charges are simply that ... charges. A child is dead the the penal system feels the need to blame someone, although in this case, I am 100% sure it was an accident. If anyone local read the article written jy Jess' mom, it was pure rubbish. She talks about how well she is involved in the family, yet in the next sentence she says she is in the dark with the whole thing. She says she hasn't even seen the family since last December. Another lie .. she was at the funeral in June. Her interview showed her dysfunction. So again Dwayne thanks for your positive input. You are right about the autopsy being only a guess as to what happened. The fact is, that this was being called "shaken baby" since the paramedics picked up the child. How would they know? People need to stop jumping to conclusions.

    Chris, autopsies may not lie but they only tell you what someone died of not how. They can only make an educated guess as to what happened. Sue please go to the police and tell them what you know. You say it makes you sick that she killed her child. Notice the media always says alleged, intill after the trial? If you have FACTS let the police know, or at least tell us. If you don't then quit jumping to conclusions and making a fool of yourself. We have a legal system let it work. Some of you think just because you have a computer, people want to hear the hate filled garbage coming from your mind. Chris says an eye for an eye. Then both of you should be blasted in the public eye and media for something that's not yet proven. Think and research before you say something you know little about. Read some of the other posts from this story and the one where she was arrested. Alot of people think she didn't do it. Just because your charged with a crime doesn't make you guilty.

    An eye for an eye, and we'd all be blind Chris.
