Jasmine's mother, Vonestine Covel, 31, of the 600 block of W. Lafayette Ave. and her boyfriend Shannon Flint, 32, of the Francis Street address were arrested and charged with child abuse and assault, police said. They said the charges could be upgraded to homicide, pending a review of the case by prosecutors.
