Today, Hamilton County Prosecutor Melissa Powers announced the indictment of Ja’Nasia Green (DOB 10/6/00) for the death of her 4-month-old baby.
Green was indicted on two counts of Murder (SF), one count of Felonious Assault (F2), and one count of Endangering Children (F2). If convicted of all charges, Green faces a maximum possible sentence of life in prison with parole eligibility after 15 years.
Green called 911 on October 25, 2023 at 11:58am to report her son was unconscious and not breathing. Paramedics attempted life saving measures. However, it was determined the child was already deceased. When paramedics arrived, the child was cool to the touch and in full rigor mortis.
The Hamilton County Coroner’s Office ruled the child’s death a homicide. The child was found to have suffered from the following injuries:
- Blunt trauma
- Contusions to the left and right eyelids
- Scars on his neck
- Contusions and abrasions to the abdominal wall
- Hemorrhages to both eyes
- Bleeding beneath the scalp
- Fractured ribs – both healing and acute
- Petechiae of the thymus
- Laceration of the liver
- Internal bleeding in the abdomen
It is believed the child died approximately 9 hours prior to Green calling 911
