Investigators charged 19-year old Jorge Sanchez with injury to a child by omission. Police say 20-month old Desiree Merjil was killed by her own mother in July.

Merjil is charged with capital murder.

Well...I don't think age has anything to do with it...iam 26 an have 4 wonderful children..my oldest 11 youngest 6..had all before I was 21...I would NEVER in any way hurt my children..its not based on age..it takes a very SICK person to hurt children...

Not all Young Mothers are like this. I had my son at 19 and my daughter at 20. I do everything I can to take care and protect my kids. It's not right to categorize all young mothers of being bad mothers. I hate to say that a lot are but not all.

This is yet another disgusting example of kids having kids. Why dont you educate yourselves before you have sex. Dont bring an innocent victim into this world only to take their lives away. Close your legs or get on birth control. Your so young and naive you dont even fully understand what you have just done to another living human being. I know you will think about it everyday for the rest of your life. Thank God this baby is in Heaven where she belongs amongst other angels.
