Beaten baby suspect released on $50,000 bond

A 30-year-old woman charged with not seeking medical attention for her two-month-old daughter who suffered 27 bone injuries/fractures was released from jail on bond March 16. Jessica Miranda Coffey was granted bond in the amount of $50,000 by Judge Arch McGarity. She was released later that day. The judge’s order stipulates Coffey can have no contact with her minor children and no contact with her codefendant Phillip Luke Norman. Coffey took the little girl to the emergency room at Spalding Regional and doctors there alerted the Lamar sheriff’s office. Norman was arrested Feb. 9. Coffey was arrested Feb. 11. Each is charged with one count of first degree cruelty to children. More charges are expected as the investigation proceeds. In court documents, Norman is identified as a ‘person’ supervising the victim. Coffey is described as a ‘parent’ with the same responsibilities. After the arrests, DFCS personnel removed three other minor children from the couple’s home at Milner Creek Apartments. The little girl has been released from the hospital and is recovering well in foster care. Bond for Norman was previously denied and he remains in the Lamar County jail.
