A mother broke down in tears as she confessed to shooting her two-year-old daughter dead, which she stated was an accident, police stated.
Jasmine Daniels, 22, has actually been charged with the murder of her daughter, Zymeiia Stevens, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Authorities responded to Daniels’ house on July 21 and talked to witnesses who informed officers they saw Daniels ‘screaming anxiously while holding the body of a child.’ Neighbors included that the young child was ‘covered in blood,’ according to a criminal complaint obtained by Oxygen
A path of bled led authorities into Daniels house and down to her basement. Private investigators would later on discover a brass bulled lodged in a basement wall and also discovered an amount of cocaine, in addition to a Glock publication.
Zymeiia was pronounced dead as she was hurried to the Children’s Healthcare facility. She had actually been shot in the arm, however a medical examiner said the bullet gone through her arm and into her lungs.
Throughout the investigation, Daniels apparently lied to police numerous times about who shot her child prior to conceded that she did it.
She initially claimed she heard three or 4 gunshots and discovered her daughter ‘dripping’ blood, according to the criminal grievance. She then changed her story and apparently blamed her 3-year-old child, who she claimed mishandled a handgun that was left on a table when she was not looking.
‘ He didn’t imply to do it,’ Daniels told private investigators.
After cops discovered the evidence in her basement, she altered her story a 3rd time and stated a complete stranger broke into her home and shot the child. Daniels then made a fourth claim that a private named ‘Eddie’ killed her child.
However, video evidence did not show anyone else entering her house on the night that Zymeiia was shot.
Daniels ultimately copped to the shooting and stated she ‘unintentionally’ fired the weapon while ‘playing around’ with the firearm.
‘ I accidentally did it,’ she said while sobbing.
Daniels kid later on backed his mom’s story and she appeared in court on Sunday via video conference.
She is due back in court on August 4.
