I just saw about it on the news. I searched her at http://www.wvrja.com/ and saw her mug shot. Anyone know if Hanna is a married name? Just wondering who she is. This is just so heart-breaking. Poor little baby.:(

This is another of Ashley's friends, Devi and I have known her all the way through high school. And Devi is right, the Ashley we know would never have done this on purpose. I was the first person Ashley called when she found out she was pregnant, she was so excited she had to mail me photos of her ultrasounds the day she got them in overnight mail. The day before all of this happened, she sent me professional photos she had made of Cambria smiling up at her and I can even remember her asking me to help her pick out a name for Cambria. The Ashley I know is not cold hearted.

This is another one of Ashely's friends....Devi, Jacy, and myself went to high school with Ashley...The Ashley that I remember is the same that has been described in the last two posts...She was not a cold-hearted person, or did anythign to anybody in high school After she moved I didnt talk to her everyday, but we did talk on myspace, and facebook...and I remember the day that she told me that she was pregnant...There is no way that she would hurt Cambria...She absolutely loved that girl...she would do anything that for that little girl....for you all to sit here and judge her without knowing her is very wrong of you...

Well does not matter who Ashley was in school does it? It matters who she is now. That is no accident to take a child and shake her so hard that it breaks her neck. That is what she did to that precious little angel. I hope that God has mercy on her poor soul because i sure do not.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family that has to endure what this monster has done.

I don't think that anyone here has judged her at all. I simply saw the report on the news and wondered who she was and expressed my sympathy for the poor little baby.

As for if Ashley is guilty of this crime or not, I'd say that will be determined with forensic evidence and not what type of person she was in high school.

I agree that this is a really sad case. More and more we hear stories of things like this happening.
I am the sister to William Bragg and for people who don't know his story he's sitting in Huttonsville Correctional facility on felony charges of child neglect resulting in death. Yes, my niece died at 1 month old supposedly at his hands. I could never sit and think that my brother would be capable of such a hainous crime...I can not believe it in my own heart or make it imaginable in my own mind. Naturally I would love to know what really happened- the thing is only my brother and God know- and it's not my place or anyone else's to place judgement.
And the same with Ashley. She knows what happened and so does God. We should pray for her and for the family. One way or another, she has to live with this.

I had not heard about this case involving your brother. I can feel the pain you are in over it and just wanted to say I'm truly sorry for what has happened in your family.

I do want to thank everyone that is out there praying for Ashley and her family....secondly as for as what happen yes Devi, Jacy, and myself fully understand that forensic evidence will prove what happen...but for people who talk to Ashley all the time we knew what was going on...She loved that little girl, and would not ever do anything to hurt her...this we know for sure...you dont spend money on professional pictures of a child that you dont love...you dont start planning the Christmas gifts that you are going to get for that little girl already unless you truly cared for her...yes we are sadden by what happened, but we, as friends, are still there for her, because that is what she needs right....she needs support, not people trying to past judgment...

In a case of Shaken Baby Syndrome, it's almost always brain trauma that causes the death of the child. It takes very little shaking to cause permanent brain damage or death to an infant.

Basically, the brain is tossed back and forth inside the skull, while arteries and veins are torn lose. Every time the brain strikes the skull, untold damage is done to brain tissue.
Studies have shown that minimal shaking can cause severe brain damage or death in an infant.

Given the right set of circumstances, it only takes a second or two for a parent or caretaker to lose patience with a crying infant. But by then the damage is done. The child has permanent brain damage or deceased. The majority of these people are remorseful for their moment of anger, or loss of self-control, but they can't change what they've done.

We need to remember that children, especially infants are helpless and fragile.

To Shonda, Devi, Jacy:

How you can defend someone of murdering a innocent baby is beyond me. Maybe she's changed since high school. Anyone that could hurt a defenseless child does not deserve to be a parent. We can only hope that she is in jail for the rest of her life,so she doesn't have the opportunity to hurt another child. If she is released, the community of Mt. Nebo need to stick together to protect the rest of the children so she is not able to kill another. Go to www.wvrja.com and search offender search for Ashley Hanna, you can see she is nothing but a druggie. Anybody can go to Wal Mart and get professional pictures taken for just a few dollars. She deserves to be shaken just like her baby did until her brain swells.

ok let me make this very clear. I have been friends with Ashley since high school as in talked to her the day before this happened, as in I am the godmother to Cambria, as in I know more about her than any of you! and apparently you all have no information as to what was going on her life. Ashley never did a single drug in her life that was not prescribed to her specifically by a doctor, she didn't even like to drink alcohol, and she has never seen the inside of a mental institution. Her hobby was needle point for god sakes. I am fully aware of the fact that she killed her child, I don't need a bunch of self righteous people sitting on their high horse telling me that one of my friends killed my god child, especially when they have no idea what they are talking about. I did not say I was defending her, I did not say that I understand what it was that she did, or that she did not do it on purpose. I stated that the Ashley I know would not do this. Now her mother is stating that she stopped taking her meds and snapped, her boyfriend said it was an arguement and it sounded like an accident, I don't know what happened but I will tell you all this, you were not there, as I was not there, and none of you have the right to say anything about her, her family, or her child. The outcome of this is that she will probably spend her life in prison, and I know most of you think that this is absolutely wonderful, well keep it to your self. Bad things happen to everyone and good people do bad things every day. The bible says that all sin is equal in God's eyes and that we have no right to judge others. So I am going to say that while what she did is wrong, I am pretty sure she knows this and she is going to be judged by a jury of her peers and by God when she dies (sorry if you don't believe in him), and she will be punished. So leave it alone.

As far as Lilly and really are concerned you two people are the reason that society is the way it is now...Ashley was not in a straight jacket...that was a jacket that she had on...as for as druggie...as Jacy, and Devi have already said...Ashley did not do drugs so dont know where you got that info from...i dont know what mug shot you have seen of someone where they looked great on them so you need to rethink what you have said...oh yeah Lilly you acting as if Ashley was a child rapist, she was not and is not a child rapist and for you to sit there and say that Mt. Nebo will need to stick together and make sure she doesnt hurt another child if she is released you are so wrong for that...And I am with Devi with the fact that God will eventually deal with you and your judging of other people....
