Convicted baby killer Genene Jones is back in the news. 

In 1984, former Bexar County nurse Genene Jones was sentenced to 99 years in prison for the 1982 death of 15-month-old Chelsea McClellan and a concurrent 60 year sentence for nearly killing another child, Rolando Santos.

She is suspected of administering fatal injections to an estimated 40 to 60 babies in the San Antonio area.
