Mother of slain infant testifies in Adam Jackson’s Capital Murder trial

The mother of the infant who allegedly died after he was beaten by his own father testified in court Tuesday.

Prosecutors asked Alexis Hill if she killed her baby. “Absolutely not,” Hill responded.

Adam Keith Jackson, a former Fort Bliss soldier, is accused of Capital Murder in the death of his 11-month-old son, Aiden.

The investigation began February 8, 2014when paramedics responded to the apartment after the baby was unresponsive. Baby Aiden was taken to the El Paso Children’s Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead, police said.

As they examined him, police said doctors found the baby’s skull was fractured and he had injuries to his throat and ankle.

Detectives believe the injuries occurred the previous day, when Aiden’s mother left him in the care of his father.

In court Tuesday, Hill testified Adam called her into her children’s room saying something was wrong.

They found Aiden with a “mixture of blood and mucus” and when she touched him, he was cold.

Hill said she ran to her friend’s apartment and when she returned, Adam was on the phone with 911 trying to resuscitate the baby.

The prosecution asked Hill why she was cooperative with police at first and then stopped being cooperative. She said Jackson told her not to trust the police because they “didn’t have her best interest at heart.”

Hill said she supported Jackson after his arrest because she didn’t “think he was capable of doing this.” She filed for divorce in June 2014.

At the time of the infant’s death, Hill’s Facebook account displayed a heart-wrenching message. “Dear, Aiden Keith Jackson,” she wrote, “I love you so much son, I cnt explain how hurt I am right now by this I jus wish I could’ve seen u an held u one last time momie && daddy kno ur in a better place we never wanted u to leave us but god called u hme today baby && all we can do is b strong … “

Lt. Col. Lee Peters, a Fort Bliss spokesman at the time of the infant’s death, confirmed Jackson was a private first class stationed on post.

Jackson has pleaded not guilty to the Capital Murder charge.
