Ty’asia Jackson Sentenced to 12 years for Killing 2-Year-Old Sister

Tyasia Jackson

Ty’asia Jackson, who was 13 when she murdered her 2-year-old sister, Sasha Ray, will spend the next 8 years behind bars, She will serve 4 years on probation.

Sasha’s body was found in the back yard of the family’s condo by her parents who left her and two other siblings in Ty’asia’s care on Nov. 19, 2012.

The toddler’s biological father, Shelton Ray, told Channel 2 Action News his stepdaughter confessed to stabbing Sasha during a phone call from jail.

Tyasia Jackson

Ty’aisa and Sasha’s mother stormed out of the courtroom on Thursday when she heard Ty’asia plead guilty to killing Sasha. Prosecutors had asked for a 20-year sentence to serve 10 behind bars. Prosecutors say Ty’asia stabbed the toddler out of anger because the toddler led a neighbor to Ty’asia’s boyfriend, who was hiding in a closet.

“Not only was she stabbed multiple times but there was an attempt to hide the murder,” Chief Assistant District Attorney Nicole Golden said in court.

Jackson’s defense attorneys asked Judge Gregory Adams for a 5 year sentence citing a mental evaluation that concluded Jackson could be rehabilitated.

“He did believe that Ty’aisa actions were the result of a brief mental break,” public defender Melanie Williams said.

“I will sentence her to 12 years to serve 8 years in custody,” Judge Adams said.

After court, Sasha’s biological father, Shelton Ray, said he still loves his stepdaughter. “Yes I do still love you, Ty’aisa,” Ray said. Ray told WSBTV he felt responsible for the tragedy.

“Sometimes I think about was it something that I didn’t do. Something more that I could have done,” he said.

He urged parents to watch their kids and talk to them to make sure they’re not overwhelmed. He sent a message to his stepdaughter, telling her to keep her head up, be strong, keep reading and stay positive while she serves her sentence. Jackson will get credit for the year she has served. She will have to serve four years probation once she gets out. Source

      The father seems to be dealing with this tragedy well, but I think she probably should have gotten more time. She was old enough to know better. This is why kids should not be trusted to watch other kids though. Sad.

      i got the impression, early on and by the stepfather’s statements, that she had kid-watching duty A LOT. her mother had 4 or 5 of them back to back, which is a bit much for a 13 year old to handle. however, she didn’t throw the lil girl in a closet or something, she stabbed her and threw her off a balcony. that’s a certain mentality. i wouldn’t ever want her round my kids or even on my street, now or 8 years from now.

      ___________

      Sadly, I agree with this.
      But they got grown folk that murder kids due to frustration and just plain not knowing what to do. What does anyone expect a 13 yr old to do with multiple children she is charged with watching?

      I think this last incident was a breaking point of built up frustration. SMH. Sad. Two lives ruined.

      i did put my lil bros in the bathroom one time while i had summer duty. they cut up so bad i took their azzez out and just dealt with them. stabbing them brutally and throwing them out back? something is just wrong in this world.

      plus, the lil girl survived long enough for her dad to come home, find her, and hold her while she died. if she had fessed up earlier, the lil girl probably could have been saved.

      *******************************************

      All of this right here. :cosign:

      There is not a family that I know of white or black that didn’t have babysitting siblings. I’m not saying go to the Bahamas on your kids, but it is impossible to turn to day care at ALL times. It’s not about “if you had them you keep them” or “older siblings not being responsible for their kid brother/sister”…it’s about fostering a family setting. A functional family looks out for one another, not do what this selfish, fast & pissy taled, self centered, & mentally disturbed lil’ girl did.

      I kept my younger brother at my side when I was coming up. It wasn’t about my mother and father trying to put him off on me. It WAS an assigned responsibility within our family. It kept me out of trouble, and off the streets. NEVER did I have the mental state of mind to harm him in any way. I’m grateful right today for the summers I had to sit my azz on the porch, because many kids didn’t make it through those summers. Those thoughts just weren’t there to hurt my sibling, praise God.

      This girl was a bad apple. She had some mental issues BEFORE this happened. I don’t believe for one second that the parents thought she’d take it that far or else they would have taken the baby with them.

      But yeah – I see nothing wrong with siblings looking out for other siblings. That takes the “ME ME ME” out of their azzes IMO. :coffee:
      It ain’t about YOU all the dayum time. Start contributing to the success of this family structure, and then learn from this how to care for your own when you have one.

      @rwilliams you do realize that older children havw been helping with younger siblings since the beginning of time right? And most would never even consider murder. A 13 yo is more than capable of watching a 2 year old here and there. That doesn’t reflect on the parents. Back in my day 13 year olds got paid to babysit. As an actual job. It does not harm them and can be a good way to teach necessary skills and earn money.

      This child is a bad seed, something isn’t right, I’m sure her mother is going crazy with the what ifs and whys of the situation. She doesn’t need internet parenting experts doing it for her

      I have 7 years on my younger brother. My mom ebing a single parent I was often the “babysitter” I hated it the older I got. She never used it for partying or late night creeps, but I still hates it and actually resented her some what for it. I never considered orbelive I could have killed my little brother regardless of how mad I was at him sometimes.

      I’m really disappointed in this verdict. I went to website and watched the video of the court appearance. Tyasia didn’t seem to be the least bit remorseful and seemed more please that she was “only” sentenced to 12 years more than anything else. She waved at her parents, smiled and hugged her attorney, and walked away with her head held straight. The entire outcome has irked me.
