Day six of the Jasmine Nicole Eskew trial was a shorter one due to motions and a Rule 105 hearing taking place to see what future evidence is allowed to be used. Once testimonies got back underway, Detective Noah Scott took the stand.
Det. Scott was told by doctors in the ER who informed him that "she also said specifically that the child had been shaken."
When Eskew was interrogated, she admitted to rocking her daughter Brooklynn back and forth, but also told police who was in the house at the time.
Det. Scott informed the jury that Jasmine had told him "said she put her in the saucer while she was crying. So she had gone in there and picked her up, and started rocking her back and forth. I asked her specifically if anybody else was in the residence at that time and she said no. Nobody else there besides her and Brooklynn."
A short time later the jury was shown the complete interrogation of Eskew, with Eskew describing what happened.
The footage showed that Eskew stating that "she just started screaming and so I then came in there and she had gotten herself so worked up that I got her and wrapped her in her blanket."
Jasmine would describe a rocking motion to detectives, but they feel that her testimony didn't match with the injuries Brooklynn sustained. Later in the interrogation footage, Jasmine would admit to shaking her daughter.
Det. Scott would be back on the stand and would be presented evidence from when Eskew was taken into custody, including clothes examined by the state crime lab. The trial will resume tomorrow morning.
