Beaten Spokane infant doing better at hospital

By The Spokesman-Review
 

A 2-month-old baby who suffered what Spokane police initially feared would be fatal injuries is now expected to survive.

SkyeLynn A. Jamison remained Monday at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, where she’s been since April 5. A woman who identified herself as SkyeLynn’s great-aunt said on a social networking site that the girl is moving, making noises and breathing on her own.

Spokane police Officer Jennifer DeRuwe said police “cannot comment further on (SkyeLynn’s) medical condition but have been able to confirm she has improved.”

SkyeLynn’s father, 18-year-old Tyler L. Jamison, is charged with first-degree assault. He remains in Spokane County Jail on $200,000 bond.
