Mother charged after sending photos of baby's head in plastic bag, prosecutors say
A Humble mother has been barred from seeing her 1-year-old son and is facing charges after apparently photographing herself putting a plastic bag over the child's head and putting the bag in his mouth.
Janelle Andrea Peterkin, 23, appeared in court Monday before state District Judge George Powell on a charge of child endangerment where prosecutors said she was caught on video abusing the child. She was arrested Thursday.
Prosecutors said she took photos and video of herself in a car about a month ago with the boy's head in a plastic bag to upset the child's father.
"She sent the pictures to her ex-boyfriend to disturb him," prosecutors said Friday.
