    OK - Alexis Morris, 6, dies of head trauma, Shawnee, 25 Sept 2009

    Stepmother held girl, 6, upside down by ankles and banged her head repeatedly on the ground to kill her (Daily Mail)
    A mother has been sentenced to life in prison with an additional 25 years on top after she was found guilty of the death of her six-year-old stepdaughter and the abuse of her stepson.

    In September 2009, Jennifer Jimenez, 29, from Shawnee, Oklahoma, held Alexis Morris upside down by her ankles and slammed her head against the ground as she was crying and screaming.
    Pottawatomie County Assistant District Attorney Adam Panter said Alexis' death could have been saved and should highlight the need to look into the quality of work carried out by Oklahoma child welfare workers..
    In the two years leading up to Alexis’ death, the state Department of Human Services received 17 child abuse complaints concerning injuries to Alexis and her younger brother, Jordan, Panter said. The injuries to Jordan ranged from a broken arm to cuts and bruises.

    Christina Potter, the natural mother of Alexis and Jordan, has filed a federal lawsuit against DHS accusing the agency of failing to properly investigate allegations of abuse against Jimenez and of discouraging the reporting of child abuse complaints by repeatedly saying the complaints were without merit.
    The lawsuit says that Jimenez previously had two of her own young children die under tragic circumstances.

    Donte Jimenez was nearly 3 when he choked to death on a hot dog fed to him by Jimenez in July 2009, records indicate.
    The other child, Eric, was reportedly 3 months old when he died in March 2001 from what the medical examiner described as “undetermined causes.”
