The father of a 6-month-old girl who died Wednesday was arrested on charges of injury to a child.

The father was booked in the Randall County Jail on the charge, according to the Amarillo Police Department.

The daughter was taken to Northwest Texas Hospital around 3:45 p.m. Tuesday because she was not breathing, according to the APD.

The girl was examined and found to be suffering from physical and sexual abuse, the APD said.

The girl was admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit and was placed on life support, according the APD. She was pronounced dead at 9 a.m. Wednesday.

Justice of the Peace Thomas Jones ordered an autopsy be performed on the girl in Lubbock on Thursday, according to the APD. The case is still being investigated by APD and additional charges may be filed.

Update on case 4/14/2007
Dad charged with murder in baby case
By Josh Burton

The Randall County District Attorney's office issued a warrant Friday charging a man accused of injuring his daughter with capital murder.

Devin Jones, the father of a 6-month-old girl who died Wednesday, was arrested that day on suspicion of injury to a child.

Preliminary autopsy results indicate Quionna Jones was the victim of head and internal injuries as well as sexual abuse.

The cause of death is listed as pending at this time as officials wait on toxicology and lab tests, said Lt. Gary Trupe, Potter-Randall Special Crimes coordinator with the Amarillo Police Department.

Trupe said the APD met with the Randall County District Attorney on Friday morning and was asked to double-check some things.

At around 6:30 p.m. Friday, the warrant was signed by 251st District Court Judge Ana Estevez and was served on Jones in the Randall County Jail, according to Trupe.

Jones will be arraigned at a later date, Trupe said.

James Farren, criminal district attorney for Randall County, said his office will seek the death penalty.

"We charged him with capital murder," Farren said. "We believe the evidence will prove capital murder. We are seeking the death penalty."

Farren said Jones had not been arraigned yet. It will either happen this weekend or Monday.

Quionna Jones was taken to Northwest Texas Hospital about 3:45 p.m. Tuesday because she was not breathing, according to the Amarillo Police Department.

The girl was examined and reportedly found to be suffering from physical and sexual abuse, police said.

She was admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit and was placed on life support, according to the APD. She was pronounced dead at 9 a.m. Wednesday.

There are not too many death penalty cases in Randall County, Farren said.

"We can only seek the death penalty in rare cases, where the evidence warrants," Farren said.

Jones remained in custody Friday at the jail.

Note to those who are against the death penalty: How can you say this monster, who murdered and tortured his own baby to death in such a horrible fashion, should not die for what he did to his own precious little baby girl? 

Karma cannot explain what this little girl did to deserve such a horrible fate this early in her short little life.

Rest in peace baby girl.  May you now be in the arms of God and know peace, love, and joy for eternity.

Where was the Mom when this abuse was taking place? I wonder why there is no mention of her.

My reason for supporting capital punishment: My cousin 16 yr. old Amanda Greenwell was murdered in March of 2004 at the hands of serial killer Jeremy Bryan Jones.

Is there something in the water in Texas? Subliminal messages or something?

I believe the original story I heard on tv, when it was first announced, was that Mom was at work and Dad was babysitting their baby daughter.

Ok, as I have stated many times, I don't believe in the death penalty because I don't believe in the taking of any human life.  BUT..........  it is cases like these that really, really make me rethink my position at times.  6 months old?   >:( >:(  My grandaughter is 5 months old and I can't even imagine ANYONE doing something like that  >:( 6 months old?????????   >:(

I have one more thing to say on this subject of this baby f....ing monster........At least he took the baby to the hospital for treatment after he sexually abused and tortured her so horribly.........Cathy Henderson did not even try to get our baby treatment for his injuries.

I'm so sorry for your pain and in some ways I do understand your anger and pain on this subject.  If people could just admit their wrong it would help so much in the healing process of the victim(s) and their families.  My thoughts and prayers for your whole family.

Now then. Sexual abuse of a minor is outrageous. However, there are varying degrees of same. In The U.K. we have two laws covering Pedophile offenses and they fall into two categories: under 13 and over 13 years of age. The former is punishable by 'Life' imprisonment which is a minimum of 14 years confinement (usually released in 9 years on 'License' ) and the latter is punishable by 5-7 years confinement (usually released within 4 years on parole). If the victim of the offense dies then the mandatory 'Life' sentence is imposed (out in around 9 years... under licence... etc...). In this Country we have NO LWOP, more's the pity, and certainly no allowance for the exact age of the victim other than 'Under 13 years of age'. We do have a 'Sex Offenders Register' that the accused is required to sign periodically at their local Police Station  ;D. However, this is no major hardship for someone with all the time in the world to do so (living on Social Security Benefits as they can't get a job and taking home their 'entitlement' in the region of 400/$700 per WEEK!!!).

Ye. at least you guys have an option of LWOP even if your dp law sucks... ;)
