Grandmother Of Baby Hurt By Pit Bull Speaks Out

A grandmother of the baby whose toes were chewed off is speaking out about the case.

"No one understands unless they have a child that this happens to," Belinda Baker said. "It is something horrible. No one can imagine what she saw of her baby."

Baker is speaking about her daughter, Robbie Jenkins. Jenkins and the baby's father, Tremayne Spillman, are both charged with felony child abuse.

A Pit Bull they were watching chewed off the baby's toes Monday.

"The baby is doing good," Baker said, "As far as I know."

Baker says she has not slept since her daughter and Spillman were arrested. She says the couple has been together for eight years and have two other children, ages two and three. According to Baker, those children are currently with Robbie's sister.

"Anyone that has any type of animal this could happen to," Baker said.

She said her daughter was taking medication that night to help her sleep.

Baker also said Robbie and Tremayne have a history of drug use but says both have gone through treatment and been clean.

"My daughter is a young person," Baker said, "Busting her buns to do a lot for these children."

Baker says Jenkins worked as a babysitter and house cleaner, and that she also donates plasma.

Baker says she is working on getting money to bail her daughter out of jail. Bail is set at $50,000.
