Sherill Small is in Milam County Jail facing a murder charge after a 2-year-old girl under her foster care died on Wednesday.

Posted: Saturday, August 3, 2013 12:00 am

Two-year-old Alexandria Hill was on the path to being reunited with family before her death earlier this week, said a spokesperson with the Department of Family and Protective Services.

Alexandria's biological parents chose to take their daughter off of life support on Wednesday, three days after she had sustained traumatic brain injuries while under the care of a foster family in Rockdale.

    Not everyone in Texas is viciously insane numnuts! I'm a Texan and this makes me sick. Don't lump an entire state together. We are all different people. Politicians here are insane, I'll give you that.

    You Texans have gone viciously insane. You're a fascist state. You threw this little girl to the monsters because her parents smoked pot? You sicken me.

    You didn't know this poor baby was in foster care since last november? Why wait to be contacted? Why not just volunteer instead?

    Removed from the family for smoking pot? That is insane!!! So tragic that CPS would remove a child for that. Texas mentality that weed is the devil and alcohol is wonderful. SMH. People need to be educated about marijuana so the nanny government wont interfere in your personal life, remove your kid and place them with a murderer.

    Cynthiainc, I am so incredibly sorry that this angel was taken from your family. She should Never have been taken from her parents for such a reason as they did. Who the HeII thought that 'woman' in Rockdale was safe to raise someone elses child, even temporarily? God bless you all and may He comfort you in this tragic time.

    I am this child's aunt and was never contacted . What can be done to make the system better? I would have taken her in.
