Kelsy Newell-Skinner allegedly woke after heavy drinking to find horribly beaten baby

Categories: Colorado Crimes

Kelsy Newell-Skinner is only 21 years old, but she's already given birth to five children by two different fathers. Now, however, she's been arrested on suspicion of felony child abuse resulting in severe injury -- a charge that will certainly be altered following the death last night of her youngest child, a two-month-old daughter. Warning: The details contained in an arrest affidavit on view below along with photos and video may be disturbing for some readers.

At 11 p.m. on July 27, according to the report, a police officer was contacted in regard to an infant brought to Children's Hospital.

Newell-Skinner's apartment complex, as seen in a 9News image.
The document states that the thus-far-unidentified baby, who'd been brought to another area hospital by her maternal grandmother, Krista Skinner, "was brain dead with severe bruising on her head, a swollen left eye, fractured ribs and suspected bite marks on her left thigh area."

The child lived at an apartment at 10700 Hampden Avenue with her mom, Newell-Skinner, and her father, Jonathan Hurst, as well a fifteen-month-old brother and three additional half-siblings -- a set of three-year-old twins and a four-year-old.

The latter's dad is identified as Chantz Darrow. He told investigators that he received a series of texts from Skinner-Newell beginning at around noon on the 27th. In one of the messages, she allegedly told him "she must have been very drunk last night, because she just woke up and the baby had been beaten," the affidavit notes. An additional text is said to have included Kelsy's acknowledgment that "she did not even remember last night and she felt horrible."

Darrow didn't exactly set a land-speed record getting to the apartment. He estimated his time of arrival at 2:30 p.m., and after seeing the beaten child, he phoned Kelsy's mother, Krista. During the call, Newell-Skinner is described as hysterical and she soon ran out of the apartment.

The complex's entryway, from a 9News report.
Next to be interviewed was Hurst, who said he'd last seen his daughter the previous evening before he'd gone to work -- and he'd stayed the night at his mom's house owing to a fight he'd had with Newell-Skinner. On the 27th, he revealed that he had e-mailed back and forth with Newell-Skinner, with her texting him just prior to 4 p.m. that "she was going to jail." Just over ninety minutes later, Krista phoned to tell him about the baby's injuries and he headed to the hospital.

During her interview, Krista Skinner said she'd gotten a text from her daughter earlier that day saying she was depressed because she didn't have any money. When she learned about the baby's injuries, Krista encouraged Newell-Skinner to dial 911 and raced to the apartment. By the time she arrived, however, Newell-Skinner was gone, so she drove the child to Parker Adventist Hospital herself.

From the affidavit: "Ms. Skinner believes that Kelsy left the apartment because she thought the police would be called."

At last report, Newell-Skinner remains in custody. No booking photo has been released as of this writing. Look below to see a 7News piece about this tragedy, followed by the affidavit.

Nalee how sad...no matter how drunk you are I don't get how she can do that to her baby.

This story is a tragedy of the worst kind.  One child is dead and four others will grow up living with that loss and possibly the temporary loss of others that they love for the rest of their lives.  If there are any true Christians out there, I would ask that you pray for this entire family.  A murderer hung next to Jesus and he was given grace.  This is ugly top to bottom and the impact will be across generations for all of the families involved here. There will be consequences and they will be severe, but loss is something that can only be healed through prayer, good counsel and time.

I'm flabbergasted by the comments in the westword story trying to defend her....saying that we don't know the entire truth. The facts are an innocent child is dead because some retard of a mother got so blackout that she didn't even know what was going on. That's the "truth"

rayedog1

BTW not to mention my family has left me and my brothers and sister with kelsey and she treated all of us like her own since she was 15 years old she has watched us. And we are all still alive and perfectly fine so why don't u all have a heart and pray for our whole family and imagine what we are all going through we lost two lives one death and one locked up in the same night we all had to hear about it and them have to handle all this bad social networking with rude comments you all worry about your own lives... How's yours going????!!! We are not all perfect RIGHT?????

and for all of you hating on her out family stick together and never breaks so keep all your damm comments to yourself

@brittany_kitten  a "loving mother" would not consume so much alcohol that she blacked out with a TWO MONTH OLD  to take care of.... your argument is irrelevant!

Im all for standing up for ur family but in this case how about u stand up for that 2 month old who didn't have a say in anything even with being born..whether she did it or not her ass needs to rot in hell. She didn't even call the cops the next day when she was sober. Instead her punk ass ran n left the baby in the house..but u say she's a loving mother smh that whole family needs help!!..God bless the children these idiots are reproducing

@rayedog1 Uh, there is PERFECT, ABOVE AVERAGE, AVERAGE, BELOW AVERAGE, BAD and REALLY BAD.  Where does this fit??  Apply statistical analysis to this... surely statistical analysis will set you free.....statistically where does this situation fit??  I'm waiting......

jenna.elaine.420

No one is ABOVE AVERAGE.Every one is diffrent.There's no normal no weird no average no nothing.And statistics have nothing to do with the fact that she may or may not have done it .The point me and my family are trying to make is that you dont know what happened.The news will tell you anything may it be true or not as long as they can get their ratings up.And the sad part is that you and everyone believe anything with out knowing the truth

Perhaps you're right, no one who rides the short bus to school and gets straight As in their special ed class is "above average".


Do society a favor, don't breed, your family's gene pool needs a good cleaning.

Since you claim to have received an A in English, let's review:


Please describe what a conjunction is and the proper use of punctuation in separating independent  clauses.


In fact, let's review punctuation rules in general.  


Please show where "gonna" is included in the English language.


Please indicate the difference between your and you're and properly use each in a sentence.


(You didn't really get straight As did you jen?) 

jenna.elaine.420

What does my grammar/punctuation have to do with anything. That has nothing to do with Kelsy skinner .Do You just sit around on your ass all day trying to put people down who dont give two shits about your opinions. What you got nothing else to say about Kelsy so u wanna jump down my throat now .? Go ahead give me all you got.What's it to you whether I'm successful in school it not like If I fail (which I won't ) I'm going to be depending on your sorry ass

Well actually that's called texting language.... My sister doesn't have to spell EVERY single word correct when she texts yeah in writing yes but texting is different and again that is not the point...

@jenna.elaine.420 ... wanna fuck?


I heard the women in your family love to get drunk, stoned and fuck like monkeys ...


Where?



... Oh, that's right, I heard that from THE WOMEN in YOUR FAMILY as recited above by rayedog.


Come on, I'll even give you some private tutoring afterwards so you can keep up those straight A's.

@jenna.elaine.420


Well golly jen, I believe it was you who claimed (falsely) that she was a straight A student.  Therefore, if you lied about that, it stands to reason you are lying about everything.


See how reality works.

@jenna.elaine.420 Rayedog1 & Jenna - Stop replying to these fools!  These are clearly people who have no ability to understand that you don't necessarily get all the facts from the media and they get excited by antagonizing people. You give people like this power by spending your time responding to their childishness. I'm T-Bonz sister, so I know your family.  I'm praying for you all and especially Kelsey as she faces what is in front of her.  It's going to be long road, so I'm going to spend my time and energy supporting her and the rest of you while the facts of this tragedy are investigated and the appropriate action is taken by the authorities.  I've always know Kelsey to be a sweet girl and it breaks my heart that this is her life right now no matter how the investigation turns out.

I'm sure you meant "doesn't have to spell every single word *correctly*"


How convenient, when one is an illiterate, ignorant twit, all one need do is claim it is

"texting language".

Dang stink, that is a bit picayune, don't you think?

However, I did notice that after I posted, so I stand corrected.


See stinky, I can admit to an occasional error.  You can't begin to admit to even one of the numerous idiotic mistakes you make.

Gosh jen, perhaps if you wouldn't have attempted to make excuses for the low-life scum who, in a drunken stupor, bit and beat her two month old child to death, you may not have been treated so harshly. 


You ignorant little twit.
