Shaken to death...


Cheyenne Rae Owensby  is a walking miracle. She  was born a healthy and happy child  and means the absolute world to her mom. Cheyenne's parents were separated and so she  visited her father every second weekend. But one day back in August 2012,  when Cheyenne's mom dropped her off at her dad's place for the night, something horrible happened.

An hour and half after dropping  Cheyenne off, her mom receives a terrible call — a call that changed her life forever.

Cheyenne  was  just eight  months old at the time. Her father, James Davis Jr., grabbed her and shook her because she wouldn't stop crying. The adult's strength was  too much for the baby and ended up  fracturing her skull  and causing  bleeding on her brain.

The desperate mother was  informed that her daughter had been flown to a nearby hospital and that she was no  longer breathing.

The horrible news that came from  the hospital to the mom was that Cheyenne would require long-term care for the rest of her life  and that she would  remain in a vegetative state: ''Between crying so hard I was shaking and throwing up, I was begging God to please save her or to take me instead. Right when I got by her bedside — seeing her covered in bandages, IVs everywhere, her leg was black from a blood clot, she was so swollen — my phone rings and it's the cops saying James confessed to shaking her.''
