A Texas mother charged in her daughter’s death reportedly told police she didn’t call 911 when her daughter was injured because her phone was low on minutes. Jessica Briones, 34, was arrested on suspicion of causing injuries to a child, San Antonio Express-News reported on Tuesday.
She brought her 4-year-old daughter to the San Antonio police substation on Sept. 5 with severe head trauma. Briones later admitted she didn’t call 911 because she couldn’t find her phone and she was allegedly “low on minutes," according to the paper.
The toddler died a day later in the hospital.
Briones told police her daughter began vomiting the morning before she was brought to the substation. At first glance the girl appeared to be suffering from arm, face and head injuries, but doctors discovered there were much more damage done to her.
