Fort Bend County sheriff fine after collapse

Texas judge dismisses murder charge against babysitter who served 15 years over toddler’s death

A Texas judge has dismissed a murder charge against a babysitter who served 15 years in prison over the death of a toddler who died while in her care.

State District Judge Karen Sage granted a request on Monday to dismiss the original charges.

Rosa Jimenez has been out of prison since 2021 after a judge ruled that a new trial was warranted at a minimum. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled earlier this year that “false testimony” in her original 2005 trial entitled her to relief.

Jimenez was babysitting a 21-month-old when he choked on a wad of paper towels and died in 2003. She had been sentenced to 99 years in prison.

Worker injured as explosion at Garland paint plant sends fireballs into sky

A worker was injured early Monday when an explosion set a paint manufacturing plant in the Dallas suburbs ablaze and shot a series of fireballs into the night sky.

A company spokesperson says the blast at the Sherwin-Williams plant in Garland happened around 1:15 a.m. People who live and work nearby reported feeling buildings tremble.

Spokesperson Julie Young says firefighters extinguished the blaze in a few hours and the employee who was injured has been released from a hospital.

A Garland Fire Marshal’s Office investigator says staff are monitoring hot spots and air quality but are yet to determine what caused the explosion.
