James Clifton Robinson was the only caretaker present when 2-month-old James Robinson Jr. suffered his injuries on Nov. 3, 2015, at their residence in the 4600 block of Deep Brook Drive in Frayser.
Robinson was indicted on charges of first-degree murder in the perpetration of aggravated child abuse and neglect. He is incarcerated at the Shelby County Correctional Center on unrelated charges.
The case is being handled by the DA’s Special Victims Unit (SVU), including Chief Prosecutor Eric Christensen and Asst. Dist. Atty. Dru Carpenter. SVU prosecutes cases of child sexual abuse and severe physical abuse of child victims; rape and aggravated rape of adult victims, and abuse of elderly and vulnerable adults.
SVU reviews child-victim cases with Shelby County’s multi-agency Child Protection Investigative Team.
