A Texas woman who claims her military husband’s deployment overseas left her too stressed to care for their three young children, one of whom died, remained jailed Friday in connection with their alleged neglect.
Tiffany Nicole Klapheke is charged with three felony counts of injury to a child in connection with her 22-month-old daughter’s death and the severe neglect of her two other daughters, ages six months and three years, Abilene police said.
Her toddler suffered from dehydration and malnutrition from a lack of basic care over a period of time, according to the preliminary autopsy report from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office in Fort Worth.
Klapheke, 21, remained in the Taylor County Jail in Abilene with bonds totalling $500,000. She does not yet have an attorney, according to jail records.
The report also shows that the toddler weighed only 17.5 pounds and her body had chemical burns, indicating the child was exposed to human waste.
The toddler died at an Abilene hospital after being found unresponsive at her Dyess Air Force Base home Tuesday.
The woman’s two other daughters were treated for severe neglect at a children’s hospital in Fort Worth, about 150 miles east of Abilene. They were to be taken out of intensive care soon, Abilene police said.
