This is a case of "mother knows best," but no one is gloating due to the horrific outcome.

Aisha Saltmarshall says she warned police, case workers, and the state that her son James was not fit to be a parent and was a danger to her granddaughter, Janiyah. Aisha had been caring for the eight-month-old, and she called authorities when James and the child's mother indicated that they wanted to return the baby to their care.

An unspeakably horrifying series of events unfolded that left the baby girl dead. Be warned. This story is upsetting and graphic.

James Saltmarshall initially claimed that Janiyah fell, sustaining several injuries. Medical reports indicate that the baby experienced sexual assault in addition to traumatic head injuries.

The father denied responsibility for the crimes and broke down in court, saying, "This never happened." His mother claims that if police had stepped in earlier, she could have kept the baby girl safe.
