The grandmother of the four-month old baby whose toes were chewed off by a pit bull, is speaking out on behalf of her daughter, Robbie Jenkins.
Jenkins and her boyfriend of eight-years, Tremayne Spillman, were arrested Monday and remain in Onslow county jail facing felony child abuse charges.
Belinda Baker, Jenkins mother, says the couple has two other children ages two and three that are currently with Jenkins sister.
Baker also tells us her daughter was taking medication to calm her nerves and help her sleep and didn't hear the baby cry out. Baker says she just hopes the public is aware this horrible accident could happen to anyone.
Baker says her grandchild is doing well, although she has not seen the baby since the incident.
She also says her daughter works as a babysitter and house cleaner, and also donated plasma.
