A Texas couple have been charged with murdering an 8-year-old girl after punishing her and causing her to jump on a trampoline in their backyard, in a 37-degree heat and for so long – that she died of dehydration. Daniel and Ashley Schwartz, were arrested by local Odessa police last week, following the shocking incident that resulted in the death of eight-year-old Jailen, who was suspected of being their daughter.
From the investigation of the incident, that day, Jailen was not allowed to eat breakfast, and then, the couple forced her to jump on the trampoline without stopping, for a long period of time. They even told her that if she stopped jumping, they would not let her drink water. As of this writing, it is not yet known what was the reason for the severe punishment that caused the young girl’s death.
During the investigation, the Odessa police received the final autopsy report, which stated that the cause of death was dehydration, but the nature of the death was murder. It was further revealed that Jailen is not the daughter of the cruel couple at all, and that her biological parents were Elisha Anderton and David Rathford. Family members claim the Schwartz couple was Jailin’s guardian, according to a local Texas news channel CBS7.
Her mother, Anderton, wrote on social media that she tried to reach Jailin, but it was too late. “All I can think about is her leaving this world, not knowing how much I loved her and how much I wanted her,” Anderton wrote. She added that her daughter was very fond of horseback riding, started on ice and other outdoor activities. Following the arrest, the Schwartz couple were taken to the Actor District Law Enforcement Center until the end of the legal proceedings.
