Witnesses Testify in Eskew Case

Posted: Updated:

"When I walked into the emergency room, I went directly to the trauma room where the active resuscitation on a child was being performed."  That was said by Tod Koch who was on call and came to the Emergency Room at Benefis the night Brooklynn Eskew sustained her injuries.

Day four of the Jasmine Nicole Eskew trial saw seven key witnesses take the stand before noon, with several others taking it in the afternoon with the main focus being on September 18th, 2012 and the events following the 911 call.

Captain Darren Hirose of Great Falls Fire Rescue and Medical, while on the stand said "she was just talking about being a bad parent."

Hirose answered questions from the prosecution saying that while in the ambulance, saying Eskew was frantic.  Eskew asked questions if the child was going to be alright and is she going to die. Eskew showed emotion again when the 911 call was played.

Detective Aaron Frick, who was a Patrolman at the time, described Eskew in the same manner saying "she was very highly distressed."

Frick was the one who interviewed Eskew and originally said that after she gave her statement that she could go back to the hospital, but it was shortly afterward, Frick found out that would not be the case.

Frick said, "the injury was consistent to that of shaken baby, yes."

The prosecution was able to prove that the baby had suffered injuries as Koch said that "I did, levels of consciousness were altered. She did not have a normal level of consciousness. She was not crying or interacting with staff."

The defense though proved that head trauma may not have occurred immediately.

When asked about proving evidence of trauma, Koch said "there was not," and agreed that "not all trauma could be seen from the outside," when asked.

The remainder of the morning and early afternoon was focused on the residence and how police were asked to watch over the property, and how the reported crime scene was to remain untouched. The trial will resume tomorrow morning.

    Sexual Offenders in Montana need tier designation

    In 2013 legislature passed a bill that gave district court judges the authority to assign a tier level to an offender after sentencing. Tier designations are important because of how it's used to predict the likelihood that a sexual offender will re-offend. However over half of Montana's registered sex offenders haven't been assigned.
