'Miracle baby's' mother speaks out
(07/15/03) PEEKSKILL - The mother of the 10-month-old baby who was thrown from a seventh story window spoke out Tuesday about the day the baby's father allegedly threw his little girl out of a window.
Jasmine Gilleo says her ex-boyfriend, Willie Williams, kidnapped her and beat her before trying to hurt their daughter Meana. She says Williams threw the baby out of her apartment window. "I didn't think she was alive," says Gilleo. But Meana did survive the fall thanks to some tree branches.
Meana's mother says she's a blessing and could not have asked for better. Gilleo says she wants Williams to pay for what he did.
Meanwhile, Williams was indicted Monday on attempted murder and 26 other counts, including burglary, stalking, assault and coercion. He remains in jail and plans on acting as his own lawyer.
