I agree 100% with you. I can't fathom not taking your baby to the ER!!
No doubt the hit in the head rendered Sophia unconscious, and not being asleep, then later she started coughing, like they tried to fabricate!
What were all the other live-ins there doing while the poor baby screamed or cried while being abused and hit in the head?
There is a difference when 1 year old cry because they are sick, cranky, or being ornery- however, if one is being beat on, and hard enough to cause death, I bet she was shrieking very loud when struck so hard on her head.
Hell yes, both need to pay for their sins. Shame on both of them.

The story keeps changing all the time. I personally know Jared Ramirez and strongly believe that he would never do anything like this. He is not the type of person, so hurt a baby. Amanda Reese should be held responsible for something, she did nothing while her baby was choking and vomiting. Jared was the one doing CPR, not her. At first she said that the whole thing was an accident, then she said she wasn't there and then she said she was but didn't know anything was wrong with the baby. Again and again, everything keeps changing. The truth will come out soon.

She was there, haven't you read the story. Her and Jared both were.. He didn't kill that baby. Killing is murder and all of this was an ACCIDENT.

Accident my ass! If you read the "story" then you would see where Jared admitted to throwing Sophia against the sofa-bed and she hit her head on the metal bar!
It'd be different IF Jared had lightly tossed Sophia onto a huge pile of big soft pillows- one would NOT expect that to cause fatal injuries....
However, throwing a tot against a very hard and dangerous object, is a different story.
How could one NOT expect a disastrous outcome?
Yes- Jared did the abuse that caused the death. Throwing Sophia in anger is not an accident.
An accident would NOT have caused the fatal death ruled as "blunt force trauma"- PROVEN by the autopsy!
As for Amanda- she breached her duty to her child. She might as well have said, "Iíll leave her here - do whatever you want to the baby."
She didnít call Protective Services. She didnít call the Sheriff's nor 911. She didnít throw him out or move out with Sophia.
Another recent case in another town>
[Boyfriend charged with first-degree murder and child abuse. Mother is charged with involuntary manslaughter and child abuse ó that she was aware of the abuse and allowed it to continue. Both have been jailed since their arrest a year ago.]
If Amanda gets of scott free, then that too will be a miscarriage of justice.

Amanda shouldn't be getting away with this too. That baby was HER responsibility and from what I heard, she has left that baby with whoever would watch her. You can't always believe what you read in the newspaper or see on tv. Most if it is all lies anyways.

And Jared wasn't the only one you might have cause her injuries. The baby had old bruising that happened way before Amanda and Jared had got together, so who abused the baby then? Not Jared, he wasn't around but Amanda herself. Unless she had another live-in boyfriend who also abused her baby, I'm sure that is going to be her next story when questioned.

You're not getting the point >noone knows< The "old injuries" were NOT that old!

Ya think bruises, scratches, and bumps show up well over 2 months later!?
You wrote "The baby had old bruising that happened *way before* Amanda and Jared had got together..."
Hmmmm?! WAY BEFORE??!! WTF!!
You're talking about a 3-4-5- or more months time frame??! Maybe even a year ago??!
Old injuries meant prior to that fateful day. Within a week or so- less than 2 weeks.

I NEVER said- nor did any of the other posts here- that Amanda was blameless!
Of course she should be held accountable- and be charged just slightly below the charges that Jared will get.

I thought it was common knowledge that Amanda was out at the bar that night- hence the reason Sophia was left with Jared... and no doubt for his rage against Sophia. She probably started crying and he went postal by throwing her against that metal sofabed, which DID not cause instantaneous death,{as many deaths are not instantaneous after blunt force trauma injuries}instead this caused {which happens often}a delayed death, more than likely where the victim has to suffer from the traumatic injuries!

See if you can comprehend this: Both are responsible for the baby's death; however, Jared should and will shoulder being the most culpable in causing the death of Sophia.

I wonder why no one else was arrested at that multi-people sharing residence? No one tried to intervene? No one did anything when the baby was abused in past incidences?
They too should be held to answer!
