DAYTON, March 23, 2007 – Detectives from the Dayton Police Department assisted by a Baytown Police Department Crime Investigation Unit, the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department and Texas Ranger Frank Huff, spent Friday morning investigating the assault of a black woman identified as Alicia Ross at the Dayton Housing Authority at 1011 Glendale in Dayton, Tx.

Dayton Police were summoned to the single-family residence at 3:38 AM on Friday morning and upon arrival found Ross had been stabbed multiple times and her 5-month-old little girl was dead.

Ross was transported by Life Flight to Houston in very critical condition according to Sgt. Doug O’Quinn of the Dayton Police Department.

O’Quinn stated that Dayton Police is interested in talking to Ross’s boyfriend and the father of the deceased baby, Mario Laval Cockerham described as a Black male, 5’-9” tall weighting about 250 lbs. Cockerham is from the local area according to police.

Little is known about how the baby died as investigators were waiting for a search warrant to search the home and determine how the baby died around mid day on Friday.

This incident occurred at a residencee directly across the street from where a home exploded as a result of a gas leak only a couple of weeks ago.

This is absolutely got to be a death sentence for the person that committed the murder of this small child. The murder of small babies in Liberty County is getting out of hand. Also the attempted murder of the mother makes it even worse. I will be awaiting my jury summons for one of these murdering idots.

Amen Hawk. Murdering children should be a Capital Offense. At the very least, Life without posibility of parole.

I was in the court house today and there was people talking about the trial is coming up on the case where the man murdered his baby and almost killed the mother. I guess it would be this case. Does anyone know when it will be? It's been almost 25 months how long does it take this county to go to trial?

We have been so busy in the county that we haven't had time to fool with things like this,why with all the happenings goin on now, we may never get to this. This case file may have gotten lost,stolen or just plain old, DIDN'T HAVE TIME. I guess we are all under investigation now that the Attorney General has stepped into Liberty County. Maybe we need to start digging for this file before the AG starts asking questions about this. WOW, we used to get by without having to work too hard. I quess our laid back attitude is over now.

This case was completely bogus. It was handled with plenty predjudice. Alicia has tried to commit suicide on more than one occasion and suffered from depression. Who's to say she wasn't suffering from post partum depression and tried to finish the job finally. She was upset that he wouldn't leave his wife to be with her but was willing to give financial support. That wasn't good enough she wanted him so she conviently took him from our family. The investigators and CSI didn't do but 2 swabs of the bloody crime scene and she said he urinated in the toilet and they didn't check that, they didn't even have a specific time of death or specific cause of suffocation. Meaning she says he put the pillow over the baby face but in the crime scene photos the baby was on her stomach. The blood in the pictures looked like it was in a wiped pattern. This is not over. There were 13 all white jurors (11 over 50 years old), Judge was white, prosecutor was white and defense was white too. He was the only black and an outsider, unlike her who worked in the jail which held him 2 years before going to trial. There was no evidence linking him to the crime scene. There was no DNA or hairs of his found anywhere on the scene. But she claims he was there regularly NOT A TRACE. No toothbrush, not even on the mattress where she claims he was often. It don't add up and their medical examiner even said she can't say that baby Jenna was smothered,no fibers were found. Only Alicia DNA was found on the baby on her knee and even though she was laying in blood only had a few spects on her clothes. No follow up DNA was done to even see if she really was my niece. The tech that did the paternity test knew Alicia and spoke quite a lot about her. But God knows and he takes care of his children. NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST US WILL PROSPER (ISAIAH 54:14)Please don't get me wrong they lost a family member and so did we. But he did not kill Jenna and eventually that will come out.

Most people flush the toilet after urinating and yes all of those people were white but just in case you didn't notice Alicia Ross is black. Also your family can still see him alive although ever since Mario Cockerham killed Jenna we can't. We was never able to see her walk, her first birthday or her first day of school. He took so may thing from her the moment that he took her life.

Everyone that is sent to prison is innocent. If you are talking about predjudice, where was his attorney during juror questioning and the jury being picked to hear this case. Each attorney can pick and strike half of the jury panel,so how can this be a racial or bogus process. If he stabbed this woman, then she was a witness that he was in her house at this time. I quess these 12 people just did't know what they were doing. I never recieved my jury duty notice for this. Dang my bad luck.

No everyone that goes to jail is not innocent! But then again maybe in Dayton or Liberty County. And no matter whether a man flushes or not he still splashes. Yes Jenna is gone but until court Alicia didn't say it was my brother. The police never looked for any other suspects and she wasn't sure is what was said in the beginning yet all of a sudden she was so sure.
They didn't do as good of job investigating as this story makes it seem.In two years they hadn't bothered identifying footprints on the scene and doing a scent test 2 years later. Come on now he has been in segregation with limited resources no sunlight and minimal showers, his scent is different than when he used freeworld soap, colognes, and sweated from work.The evidence didn't prove him guilty.We even heard them say the had 2 jurors who were undecided, until they took care of it. Yes Alicia was black but she was one of them meaning an employee, Mario was an outsider who in the beginning was a person of interest.
The two of them were not in a relationship either, the had relations alledgedly before work that doesn't make them a couple by the way.

RIP Baby Jenna

you know the funny thing is, when I read about a child that has been killed by someone (it sad that members of the alleged murders family or freinds always seem to get very upset about people saying things about them ( BUT) I don't think I have ever so far seen any of those same people saying how horrorfide & shocked they were to hear about this happening in the first place .

First of all about the posting that Mario’s sister put on the Vindicator’s web site. Yes Alicia did have cuts in places that she could reach although she also had cuts in places that she could not have reached. How do you get that Mario welcomed Jenna into his family when Renita said on the stand that Mario was mad about the DNA results. That doesn’t sound like a father that wants the child to me. Who cares if Alicia worked at the jail before? She is not there now and hasn’t worked there in a long time. Alicia’s history of “suicidal tendencies” yes it was brought up and the one of the medical witnesses said that there was no way that Alicia Ross could have done that to herself. The only story Alicia has told is that Mario killed Jenna and she has said that since the 911 call that I listened to myself. Who cares if Alicia and Mario was or was not a couple they must have had relations not allegedly had relations Jenna was 99.99% his child and from what his wife said (on the stand) he was not happy about that so why would Mario have not been a person of interest from the beginning ?

First off "Texan" Mario did welcome Jenna into his family, Alicia just wasn't happy with the fact that he was now only interested in supporting the baby as opposed to the idea of being there for her and the child. Therefore like she stated herself, when he(Mario) once told her(Alicia) he wanted nothing to do with her she attempted to commit suicide because she didn't wanna deal with life. She attempted this becase she felt that she was the reason that he didn't want to be with her. She felt that it was something wrong with her so she tried to fix the situation by attempting to take her own life. Now if that doesn't make you think something is wrong with her then we need to get you checked. Point bein made is that she bout killed her own baby so she should be the one in jail.

Woodstock when Alicia had said that she had attempted to commit suicide she said nothing about Mario even being in her life at that point. If she was the one that had killed her own child she would be the one in PRISON but she not the man that killed Jenna is. (Mario is now in Prison not jail)
