CPS: Foster mom of dead infant misled caseworker

CEDAR PARK, Texas (AP) - State Child Protective Services says it accepted the promises of a Central Texas foster mother that a man with a violent history was not living in her home where an infant suffered fatal injuries.

Various court documents show 32-year-old Jacob Robb Salas listed as his address the suburban Austin home where year-old Orien Destiny Hamilton was hurt Sunday. But a CPS caseworker who previously conducted a welfare check accepted the assertion of the foster mother that Salas lived elsewhere.

A police complaint indicates Salas confessed to harming the baby by squeezing her head between his knee and the floor.

Salas is charged with injury to a child and being held without bond at the Williamson County jail.

Online jail records do not indicate an attorney for Salas.
