  • Arkansas couple charged with murder after baby dies in hot car

    Little Rock, Arkansas — A married couple, Justin Rollins and Deja Rollins, are facing multiple criminal charges in the death of their 2-year-old son, Jay’Dien Rollins, who died of heat exhaustion after being left unattended in a hot car outside Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH). The couple was at the hospital with their 3-year-old child, who had allegedly been the victim of abuse.

    Authorities announced that Justin and Deja Rollins were arrested over the weekend and charged with one count each of aggravated murder in connection with Jay’Dien’s death. The incident came to light when officers responded to a call about potential child abuse involving the 3-year-old at ACH on Sunday afternoon, July 7. The child required emergency medical treatment for serious injuries.

    During the investigation, officers learned that the couple had four other children, ages 2, 4, 7, and 10. Initially, Justin and Deja Rollins would not disclose the whereabouts of the other children.

    Authorities eventually discovered that all four children had accompanied their parents to the hospital. 2-year-old Jay’Dien and his siblings were left in the car, which led to Jay’Dien’s tragic death.

    At 12:42 p.m., Little Rock Police officers were dispatched to Children’s Hospital and advised of a child abuse report from the Jacksonville Police Department involving the Rollinses. Both parents now face serious charges as investigations continue into the circumstances surrounding the abuse and fatal incident.

    Rochester, Minnesota — Olmsted County District Attorney Mark Ostrem announced criminal charges have been filed against Officer Shane Roper for his role in a fatal car crash May 18 at the intersection of Apache Mall Drive and 12th Street SW that killed 18-year-old Olivia Flores and injured five others.

    At approximately 5:44 p.m. on May 18, emergency services were dispatched to a three-vehicle, seven-passenger crash at the entrance to Apache Mall. A Minnesota State Patrol unit led by Trooper Roper collided with a Ford Focus, which then struck a Toyota Rav4. Ms. Flores died several hours later from her injuries, while five other people sustained serious injuries. Roper sustained minor injuries.

    An investigation by the Rochester Police Department revealed that Trooper Roper, during a traffic stop, activated his emergency lights and drove down a ramp at a high rate of speed, reaching 98 mph. He turned off his emergency lights and sirens, accelerating to 83 mph as he approached the entrance to the shopping center, where the speed limit is 40 mph. Without emergency signals, Roper collided with a Ford Focus as it turned left into the shopping center, hitting it at full throttle.

    Minnesota State Patrol guidelines require periodic high-speed driving training for officers. Officer Roper had completed 13 driving courses, totaling 107 hours over his eight-year career. The investigation revealed that Roper had engaged in high-speed driving multiple times prior to the day of the crash.
