Mistrial declared in baby slaying
Elizabeth Allen: Express-News
After three days of deliberations, jurors on Thursday deadlocked in the trial of a man accused of killing his 10-week-old daughter.
Crisp, 23, was accused of the April 2005, beating death of his daughter, Jayden Marie Crisp. Family members on both sides declined to comment Thursday.
In several hours of interviews with police, Crisp never said he killed his daughter. But he did admit to shaking her, squeezing her, choking her and bouncing her "real hard."
She had just started a new job the day of Jayden's death, and Crisp took their daughter to see her during lunch. But the baby looked "horrible," Flores testified.
