Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the father who allegedly shook his 9-week-old baby and stuck his fingers down his throat, leading to the baby’s death.

A father is accused of abusing his 9-week-old son, leading to his death. The man allegedly stuck his fingers down the infant’s throat in an attempt to stop his crying. Demand justice for this innocent baby.

At only 9 weeks old, Jax had reportedly endured a lifetime of abuse. The infant had broken bones and bleeding on his brain when he arrived at Missouri’s Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. His father, Robert James Burnette, allegedly picked Jax up by his neck, shook him, and threw him onto a bed. Jax’s mother, Megan Hendrix, allegedly witnessed the abuse and did nothing to intervene.

Burnette has been charged with child abuse resulting in death. Hendrix has been charged with felony child abuse or neglect. Sign below and demand the maximum penalty in this case.


Dear Prosecuting Attorney Lohmar,

A 9-week-old baby died after he allegedly suffered horrific abuse. His father has been charged with child abuse resulting in death. We demand justice for this innocent baby.

Megan Hendrix allegedly witnessed Robert James Burnette abusing their son on multiple occasions, including when he allegedly put his fingers down the baby’s throat to stop his crying. She also reportedly admitted that she’d lied to doctors about her son’s various injuries. The baby presented many injuries in various stages of healing, a common sign of abuse.

This horrific abuse cannot be tolerated. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

    if you want to stop the baby from crying, just give the baby something to do.

    • Actually, NOT true for a newborn baby, which this baby was (only 9 weeks old at time of death)…..babies that age need to be held, cuddled, fed, changed, and that’s pretty much it…..of course they DO cry, for many reasons……most of which we adults can’t figure out.

  2. THIS IS MURDER; he should be given life in prison or the death penalty depending on what state he lives in….the mother as well.
