Mom of slain baby released from jail to plan funeral

The mother of the infant whom Dallas police say was drowned by a 14-year-old girl was released from jail Wednesday night.

The woman was in jail on an unrelated charge while her baby was in the care of a friend, until her Monday death.

Part of Keshondria Hull's early release Wednesday was so that she could work on funeral arrangements.

Hull gave birth Nov. 28 to a baby girl named Justice.

Soon after, Keshondria had to report to jail for 90 days for a variety of tickets and probation violation.

Child Protective Services placed Justice with a family friend at Keshondria's request.

The agency says it's now reviewing the entire process carried out in the placement after police say a 14-year-old living in the Red Bird apartment drowned Justice on Monday morning.

Keshondria's mother, Clarissa Hull, spoke to FOX 4 Tuesday in the midst of planning Justice's funeral.

Clarissa needed her daughter's signature so the medical examiner could release Justice to the funeral home.

Keshondria hull has two other children -- a 4-year-old son who lives with her grandmother and a 1-year-old son who lives with her aunt.

Internal mix-ups within Dallas County and Hill County, where Keshondria also had outstanding warrants, delayed her release Wednesday, but now she is home with family and helping with funeral arrangements.

The wake is scheduled for Monday night and funeral Tuesday.

While Keshondria was released from jail, her charges aren't going away.
