A Houston couple is charged in the death of their prematurely born daughter.

The Harris County District Attorney says Jason Robin is charged with murder and Katharine White is charged with injury to a child by omission. It's after the death of 10 week old Jazmine Robin. She died on July 15, 2018. This was just 12 days after she was brought home.

An autopsy showed that she died from  being struck in the head. She had bruises on her face and scalp and 96 fractures, including 71 rib fractures and a cracked skull.

Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg issued a quote: "The evidence shows that Baby Jazmine fell victim to the very people who were supposed to protect her the most in this world. After a full and thorough investigation of the facts, we have filed charges, and will seek justice for young Jazmine."

If convicted, each defendant faces the possibility of life in prison.
