    From the comments under the 2nd article, I won't be suprised if the girlfriend is arrested.

    A couple of posters claim to know her and are suspicious.

    Rest in peace baby Ashton.

    This is local for me. I remember seeing video of the baby's mother. It was absolutely heartbreaking. I wonder how much the girlfriend played in the the abuse and murder of this child?
