Wrongful Death Suit in Case of 7-month-old Baby

17 days after healthy 7-month-old baby Aurora was placed in Deanza Jones’ foster care, she was found dead in an unchanged feces-filled diaper, surrounded by vomit, with some of her skin eaten away by cockroaches. A Tulsa County judge has declined to reduce the $20 million jury award in the case of negligent foster care. The state Department of Human Services, which placed the baby in Jones' care, previously had paid $175,000 to settle claims against it in the wrongful-death suit.
