SMITH COUNTY, Texas (KETK) – A Texas woman who was sentenced to eight years in jail for child abandonment died Oct 23.
Kelsey Frazier, 28, of Tyler, was an inmate at the Marlin Unit prison near Waco. She died of cardiac arrest at a hospital in Marlin, according to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
The child’s mother testified in the case and said she “really trusted [Frazier] a lot” and never saw any indication that her daughter was in danger while Fraser was babysitting.
The case was heard in the 241st District Court in Smith County.
