Sumner County, Kang Eun (KSNW) – Shelby Johnson, a woman accused of murdering her seven-month-old daughter Jesslin Hulett in April 2018, is now free to act. On Tuesday, Sumner County Attorney Larry L. Marzinski II shared details regarding the dismissal of the case and issued the following statement:
“After careful consideration of the proceedings and prosecution, and a thorough examination of all reports and evidence available in the proceedings, Kansas has sufficient proof of the proceedings against Ms. Johnson. We have determined that there is a lack of evidence. Beyond reasonable doubt, we have decided to dismiss this issue without prejudice until further investigation is conducted.
This decision was not made lightly. Together with the Deputy Attorney General, we carefully reviewed the entire file and evidence. Former county lawyer has filed a provisional appeal on the admissibility of evidence, and the Kansas Court of Appeals has ruled against the state against the state. 122,243. This decision effectively suppressed the evidence important for the state to prove the case.
The county law firm will continue to work with Wellington Police and Sumner County Sheriff to find and track additional investigation clues in pursuit of Baby Jesslin’s justice. “
In August 2018, Johnson was arrested on suspicion of a first-class murder that killed seven-month-old Jesslin Hewlett. Jesslin was found unresponsive on April 1, 2018. In May 2018, authorities identified her death as a murder.
