Police arrest mother for killing 2-year-old child

The mother of a child who died from critical brain injuries last month was arrested by Henderson Police Tuesday. Detectives say 29-year-old Jazmin Ramirez caused the injuries that led to the death of her 2-year-old-son.

The child died from his injuries in the hospital on March 13. Henderson Police said on March 10, at about 10 p.m., Ramirez called 911 operators stating that her two-year-old son wasn't breathing.

The child was taken by ambulance to St. Rose Dominican Hospital-Siena Campus, and shortly after, he was transported to Sunrise Hospital, where the brain injuries were discovered.

Ramirez told officers her child received the injuries when he fell from a bed earlier in the day. Henderson Police said the boy died three days later due to the injuries to his brain.

According to officers, there were four prior Child Protective Services complaints against Ramirez from 2008-2010, with two of them being substantiated for neglected treatment. Those cases involved Ramirez's nine-year-old son.

On Tuesday, Ramirez was arrested and booked into the Henderson Detention Center on a charge of murder.

This is the second homicide investigated by the Henderson Police Department in 2017.
