Texas District Judge Teresa Hawthorne has signed an order releasing Keshondria Hull from jail so that she can be out in time for the funeral of her 2-month-old infant, who was allegedly drowned by a family friend’s daughter, WFAA-TV reports.
Hull was serving a 112-day sentence for a probation violation on a felony theft charge, the news site notes. However, given the circumstances, the judge reportedly wanted to do her part in ensuring that the grieving mother could say her final goodbyes.
According to the news station, there are a few more legal issues to get sorted out before Hull—who was also being held on theft and trespass charges in a different county—will be released, but her mother, Clarica Hull, is hopeful. “She’s still a mother that birthed her, and I know she still has love for her child,” she said.
Keshondria Hull’s daughter, Justice, was in the care of one of her mother’s friends while the new mother served her jail time. However, when the friend left for work on Monday morning, the friend’s 14-year-old daughter allegedly drowned the infant.
