Ashley Kreh

Ashley Kreh, 23, shook her daughter, Darlene Marie Rogers, because she was mad the child’s father, Ordie Rogers, 32, of Chloe, did not acknowledge Valentine’s Day.

In the process, the child’s head hit a crib rail.

Kreh was sentenced for child neglect causing death in Calhoun County Circuit Court on Friday.  She was charged because she did not seek immediate medical attention for her daughter who suffered brain injuries.

The child was eventually taken to Roane General Hospital initially and later died at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown.

Rogers is facing separate child neglect charges.  His trial has not yet been scheduled.

State police handled the investigation.

    Finally a judge who has the guts to give what was deserved, thank you your Honor. One day she will face the highest judge of all judges and what will will he say? God bless this little child.

    Is there an honest serving judge or cop in this state?? I don't think so. Most corrupt state in the union.

      Then do us all a favor and get out of WV and don't let the door hit you in your large behind.

    But a grandmother shoots wildly into the air (second occurrence) outside her home and kills her grandson next door. She gets probation. Both she be in the same cell together or share the same needle.

      I would debate this with you but your comment already proves my point.

        Debate what? Two ignorant people killed innocent children. One is set free on probation while the other has to serve 40 years. Please do not say that they have suffered enough, or even say the grandmother is less guilty than this mother. If the grandmother had shot somebody else's family member she would be going to jail too. They should both go to jail!!!
