(Angleton, TX) -- A state parole board is waiting to make a decision on whether to let a baby killer nicknamed the "Angel of Death" out. The board heard testimony yesterday from Houston's victim advocate, who pushed to keep Genene Jones locked up. She was given 99 years behind bars in 1985 for killing a 15-month-old by injecting a muscle relaxant into her. The ex-nurse is also suspected of killing dozens of other babies in San Antonio and Kerrville, but hasn't been prosecuted. The 64-year-old is scheduled to be released from prison in 2017 due to a state law regarding prison overcrowding. Bexar County prosecutors are working to see if Jones can be charged with other crimes.
