Texas Girl, 2, Shot To Death; Mother Charged

POST (February 21, 2014) Ashlee Anne Dean, 34, was in the Garza County Jail Friday, charged with capital murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter.

Alexandria Lee Courtney-Dean was found dead late from a gunshot wound to the head late Thursday in Post, Garza County Sheriff Terry Morgan said.

Dean’s stepmother, Bonita Dean of Lubbock, said her stepdaughter doesn't yet have an attorney.

"All we can do is speculate at this point until they finish the investigation," she said.

"We don't know what frame of mind she was in when this happened."

Alexandria would have turned 3 in April, Bonita Dean said.
