Hearing set in alleged child murder case

A hearing is set in a state district court today for a local woman, charged with murder in connection with the death of her infant son.

Sheryl Ann Jackson, 24, of Greenville, remains in custody at the Hunt County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bond, indicted on one count of murder involving the death of 6 month-old Tytus Hoskins. Jackson has pleaded not guilty,

A trial date has not yet been set in the case. An interim hearing is scheduled this morning in the 196th District Court.

The indictment accused Jackson of “intentionally or knowingly committing or attempting to commit an act clearly dangerous to human life” — namely leaving Hoskins unattended in the vehicle for more than two hours on Dec. 1, 2012 — and/or “not informing doctors for two days that Tytus Hoskins had been left in the car unattended, that caused the death of Tytus Hoskins.”

The Greenville Police Department reported Hoskins began to succumb to exposure and the consequences of exposure on the day when the temperature rose to an unseasonably warm 81 degrees.

The police department was notified of the offense on Dec. 3, 2012, at which time it began an investigation along with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
