HOUSTON (WTHR) — A couple has been charged after authorities in Texas said they killed their 10-week-old daughter.

Jason Robin, 24 and Katharine White, 21 were charged in connection with the death of their daughter Jazmine.

The infant was born prematurely at 29 weeks, according to KPRC, and was released from the neonatal intensive care unit on July 3, 2018. Just 12 days after the child was brought home, she was taken back to the hospital with "clearly inflicted head trauma," according to court records.

An autopsy report indicated that the child had five contusions on her face and 10 contusions on her scalp, KPRC reported. The girl had nine contusions on her torso, five trauma areas on her right arm, six trauma areas on her left leg and three trauma areas on her right leg with more than 90 fractures throughout her body.

The infant's official cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head.

The infant's father is being charged with murder while the mother faces a count of injury to a child by omission. If convicted, both could face life in prison.
