Mom Smiles, Winks At Judge during Toddler, Teenagedaughter Murder Hearing by jude4us(m): 6:54am On Aug 14, 2014
A Washington woman accused of drowning
her 2-year-old and slicing the throat of her
teen daughter was seen smiling and winking at
a judge during her hearing for aggravated
murder and attempted aggravated murder
charges.
Notes left by a mother accused of drowning
her 2-year-old and cutting the throat of her
teenage daughter recounted the attack and said
the “baby didn’t suffer as she fell asleep in the
water,” according to an arrest warrant
affidavit unsealed Tuesday.
The document was released as a Clatsop
County Circuit Court judge accepted not guilty
pleas from Jessica Smith to charges of
aggravated murder and attempted aggravated
murder.
The murder charge could bring the death
penalty if Smith is convicted.
Smith, 40, of Goldendale, Washington,
appeared in court via video and smiled on
several occasions during the 20-minute
hearing. She nodded and winked when asked
whether she understood that she would
remain in jail at least until a Sept. 30 hearing.
Authorities have said Smith checked into the
Surf Sand Resort in Cannon Beach on July 29
under her own name with her two daughters
in tow.
Three days later, a cleaning crew found the
drowned body of the 2-year-old girl. The still-
breathing teenager was covered in blood with
her throat cut.
According to the affidavit, Smith gave her
teenage daughter a double dose of a sleeping
agent, then used a numbing compound on her
neck before her throat was slashed.
Smith considered cutting the toddler’s throat,
her 13-year-old daughter told an Oregon State
Police detective, but chose to drown the child
instead.
The state medical examiner, Dr. Karen
Gunson, told The Oregonian that the 2-year-old
had been heavily sedated with an over-the-
counter antihistamine.
Gunson told the newspaper that asphyxiation
by drowning was the main cause of the 2-year-
old’s death and the drug was a “contributing
cause.”
