Bell County Jail records show that a suspect wanted in a Killeen child injury case in April 2020 was returned to Bell County after being arrested earlier this month in Colorado
Karla Karey Jacques, 29, was jailed Monday night for child injury on bail set at $ 30,000.
Killeen Police Department spokeswoman Ofelia Miramontez said the case developed on April 24, 2020 when a call from the 4500 block of Jim Foley Drive arrived regarding a heart problem.
However, as staff were on their way, the Bell County Communications Center reported that a 15-month-old boy had fallen, was unconscious and was not breathing.
Rescue measures were taken and the child was transported to Adventist Health Hospital.
A police investigation into the incident led them to believe that someone intentionally and knowingly caused bodily harm to the victim’s face and arms.
On July 15, 2021, a complaint was referred by the Bell County District Attorney’s Office for bodily harm to a child intentionally named Jacques.
On July 16, Jacques was located in Colorado Springs and was arrested without incident by the United States Marshals Service and transported to the El Paso Colorado County Jail, for transfer to Texas.
