Trial begins in child death

Abilene, Tx

The man accused of beating a 2-year-old Abilene boy to death spent the majority of the first day of his murder trial Monday with clasped hands and a pensive expression.

Franklin Edward Ramey Jr., 31, faces life in prison if convicted in the death of Hayden Vickers, who was found Feb. 18 with what police called injuries consistent with "abusive head trauma."

On Monday, a jury of seven women and five men listened to opening arguments in 104th District Court.

"There's evidence that's going to tell you what blow killed Hayden," said Joel Wilks, assistant district attorney.

Wow! We are now learning the facts in this case. Amber Vickers, the mother of Hayden, testified on Tuesday.

At the time of Hayden's death, Vickers testified Hayden had severe diaper rash and a number of bruises. Also, her surviving two children now live with her parents. Vickers said she is working with Child Protective Services to try to regain custody. I am glad to hear that the children are with family. I hope they are in a good environment.

The nurse who took care of Hayden at Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth (where Hayden was eventually life flighted) , also testified Tuesday.

The nurse testified that Vickers did not seem emotionally connected to Hayden as she would expect. "She seemed more concerned with needing to take a shower."

Also, the reason Amber Vickers left her three children with Franklin Ramey, Jr. that fatal day was because she went to her grandmother's home to borrow $5 for cigarettes from family members!
Borrow money for cigarettes?

Why not borrow money to treat the severe diaper rash?

Ann-Tx shakes her head and walks away with disgust . . . . .

I realize that newspapers have limited space and I want to commend and thank The Abilene
Reporter-News for covering this case. I am very disappointed in the shallow content of the coverage from KTAB/KRBC and KTXS in Abilene. With the info they have provided so far, I could call Judge Lee Hamilton's clerk or staff and get that info. Maybe that is what they are doing. It is apparent the reporter from the Reporter-News is in the court room!

Please see the article below for info regarding Tuesday's testimony.

Amber Vickers leaves the Taylor County Courthouse after testifying in the trial of Franklin Edward Ramey Jr., who is accused of killing Vickers' 2-year-old son, Hayden Vickers, in February.

Vickers says ex-boyfriend didn't call 911

By Denise Blaz

The mother of an Abilene toddler testified Tuesday that the man who prosecutors say beat her son to death refused to call 911 to get help for the boy.

Franklin Edward Ramey Jr., 31, faces life in prison if convicted of murder and injury to a child in relation to a February incident that left Hayden Vickers, 2, with what police called injuries consistent with "abusive head trauma." The child died the next day.

Amber Vickers, 24, on Tuesday told jurors in 104th District Court that, on the morning of Feb. 18, she went to her grandmother's house to borrow $5 from family members to buy cigarettes, leaving her three children with Ramey, her then-boyfriend.

Per this article, Franklin Edward Ramey, Jr. did not take the stand as expected.

If I understand this article correctly, it appears the State rested their case, the Defense did not put on any witnesses, there were closing arguments and Judge Hamilton handed down the case to the jury for deliberations. The reporter did not state this in these words but that is the conclusion I get from the article.

The jury deliberating the fate of Franklin Edward Ramey Jr. is back from its break and determining his fate.

Earlier, the jury asked for clarification on the timeline on the death of a 2-year-old, but Judge Lee Hamilton and attorneys have kicked back the request because they said it was too vague.

Hung Jury! Will be tried again - pobably in the spring.

The good news is the jury did not come back with "Not Guilty."

I did not attend the trial and therefore, did not hear the testimony. Based on what was reported by the media at the time of Hayden's death and during trial, I really thought Ramey would be found guilty.

Like the great majority of these type of cases, this is a circumstantial evidence case. Ramey was the only one there at the the time of Hayden's death. Being that the jury was hung, I guess some on the jury needed a video of Ramey in action! Disgusting!

Hayden, maybe at the next trial, justice will be served . . . for you! afro

I promise I will keep monitoring this case!

Hung jury declared in trial of Abilene man accused of killing 2-year-old

By Brian Bethel, Greg Kendall-Ball
Abilene Reporter-News -- Abilene, Tx

Posted November 18, 2011 at 11:53 p.m.

The trial of an Abilene man charged with the murder of a 2-year-old boy ended in a hung jury late Friday night.

“Apparently the jury, we don’t know exactly, couldn’t reach a verdict,” said Assistant District Attorney Joel Wilks about 11:30 p.m., after jurors debated for more than seven hours whether or not Franklin Edward Ramey Jr., 31, was responsible for the February death of Hayden Vickers.

“It just means it will go back on the court’s docket and it will be rescheduled, probably for sometime in the spring would be my guess,” Wilks said.

Special thanks to the Abilene Reporter-News for covering this trial in detail!

I am very disappointed in the "shallow" reporting by KTAB/KRBE and KTXS. They covered the trial but it must have been via phone. The info they provided I could have got via phone.

They did excellent coverage on keeping Billie Jean Dunn in the news and catering to her and the side shows (so it seems) but I guess the homicide of a 2 year old special needs child is not a top priority for their reporters. Just my opinion!


The gold star goes to the reporters of the Abilene Reporter-News in Abilene, Tx:

I wish Judge Lee Hamilton would have not allowed the jury to deliberate past 7 p.m. I wish he would have sent the jury home and let them resume deliberations on Monday.

Perhaps the outcome of this trial would have been different.

In the article from the Abilene Reporter-News, Assistant District Attorney Joel Wilks made a comment at 11:30 p.m. about the jury deliberating more than 7 hours.

The jury must have been exhausted if they were in court all day and then deliberated until perhaps 10:30 or 11 p.m. That would be mentally, emotionally and physically exhausted!

I have served on juries before and I know how draining deliberations can be. Maybe the jury needed the week-end to clear their head.

Per the Taylor County District Clerk records re Franklin Edward Ramey, Jr. - Case No. 18110-B:

Jeff Johnson is Franklin Edward Ramey, Jr.'s court appointed attorney.

With Ramey's background, I did not think he could afford to retain his own counsel.

I am disappointed about the outcome of this trial. I am very sad for Hayden.

One thing we know for sure, Hayden, an innocent and defenseless two year old toddler did not inflict his own injuries!

I can only imagine how devastated Hayden's family must be over the news of a "Hung" jury.

Hopefully, the next trial will provide justice for Hayden!

Many of these juries lately leave a lot to be desired. I'm getting the impression that they aren't comprehending the judge's instructions, are refusing to look at circumstantial evidence, and want to be done with the deliberations as fast as they can.

Child abuse: Statistics tell widespread tale but crime preventable, Big Country experts say

By Greg Kendall-Ball
Abilene Reporter News - Abilene, Tx

Posted February 11, 2012 at 11:48 p.m.


Nearly a year ago, 2-year-old Hayden Vickers died in a Fort Worth hospital, succumbing to what police called "abusive head trauma."

The man charged with his murder originally told police that the boy fell off the bed. But as the investigation continued, evidence of abuse surfaced.

The boy's father and great-grandmother reported Hayden had been punched in the head so hard his retina detached and the imprint of a fist could be seen on his skull.

Franklin Edward Ramey Jr. — whose trial late last year ended in a hung jury — reportedly admitted to police that he had shaken and slapped Hayden in the head and face before throwing him onto a bed. According to court documents, the boy's mother, Amber Vickers, was living with Ramey, her boyfriend, at the time of the Feb. 18, 2011, incident.

Hayden was one of the five abuse- or neglect-related fatalities in the Big Country last year, according to Child Protective Services data.

He was one of the 745 children who were abused or neglected in Taylor County in 2011.

Per the above info, the second trial for Franklin Edward Ramey, Jr. is still scheduled for 3/26/12.

I also see that the State submitted their application for subpoenas on 3/6/12.

I hope Ramey is found guilty this time around. Poor little Hayden Vickers.
