Andrea Nichole Jennings, 23 of Mansfield, was arrested on Thursday night under allegations in the death of a 3-year-old boy, according to an article by Amanda Rogers of the Mansfield News-Mirror.

The child was taken from a Grand Prairie motel to the Medical Center of Arlington on Wednesday night with "suspicious injuries" according to Mansfield police spokesman Thad Penkala. Jennings faces a capital murder charge, and bail had not been set at the time, according to the story. The boy was pronounced dead at 11:05 p.m. at the hospital that night.

"Grand Prairie investigators determined that the child was injured at Jennings’ residence in the 1600 block of East Debbie Lane in Mansfield, Penkala said," the article continues. "
Jennings is an acquaintance of Brayden’s mother and is not believed to be related to the child, he said."
