A mother saved her six-month-old baby with her 'last breath,' sheltering the infant in the toilet after her boyfriend shot her in the head and turned the gun on himself.

Jessica Arrendale, 33, was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head along with Antoine Davis, 30, who police believe shot himself and Arrendale in a murder-suicide in an Atlanta suburb.

Police had surrounded Arrendale's townhouse. When they finally entered the home, they found the baby safe inside and rushed her to the hospital to treat her for hypothermia.

Officers arrived at the home in Smyrna in the early morning hours Sunday, responding to a call that there was someone in the home armed with a gun. 

Arrendale's mother, Teresa Ionniello, told WSB Radio that Arrendale and Davis were together the night that Davis became 'belligerently drunk and abusive,' an episode that sadly had happened many times before in their relationship.

Davis chased Arrendale up to the third floor of her home, where Arrendale picked up a baseball bat to defend herself, according to Ionniello, though Davis overpowered her and struck her with the bat.

Arrendale then barricaded herself in the bathroom with their six-month-old, Cobie. Davis went to get his firearm, an assault rifle, from the closet, and it was around this time that police arrived at the home.

 

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that police evacuated nearby homes as a precaution and attempted to make contact with the armed man inside.

When officers made the decision to breach the doors around 1:30 p.m., they found the bodies of Arrendale and Davis, both killed by gunshot wounds to the head, Davis's reportedly self-inflicted.

Cobie was found in the toilet bowl, covered by her mother's body but safe and alive. SWAT officers rushed her to the hospital to treat her for hypothermia. 

'She had pure will. She wanted that baby to live,' Ionniello said of her daughter. 'Her last breath was saving the child.'

Father: Davis's ex-wife Tamaira Chesley described Davis in kind terms, saying that lately he had been struggling with depression and mentioning a custody dispute he had with Arrendale

She believes that Davis couldn't see the child in the bowl, and left the bathroom to go into his daughter's room, where he shot himself.

In addition to the couple's five-month-old, Fox 5 reports that Davis's two daughters from a previous marriage, ages 9 and 10, were in the home.

Their mother, Tamaira Chesley, described how one daughter later told her that Davis stared at her for a 'very long time' before she asked him, 'Daddy, what are you doing?'

Chesley says Davis then went upstairs with a gun and the daughter heard Arrendale screaming and then a 'boom.'

'I'm not sure where his depression came from,' Chesley says, but says there was a custody battle over the six-month-old girl.

Leslie Tidwell, a friend of Arrendale's, set up a GoFundMe page for her two children, writing on it that 'Jessica was the sole provider for her household.'

Davis and Arrendale's six-month-old is still being treated at Children’s Health Care of Atlanta at Scottish Rite Hospital and plans are for Ionniello to take custody of her.

WSB reports that the baby remained in the toilet, covered by her mother’s body, for 13 hours before officers finally stormed the townhouse and rescued her.

A gofundme page has been set up to help care for Arrendale’s four surviving children.

Donations for children of Georgia mom killed protecting infant

By FOX NEWS -

Donations are pouring in for the children of a Georgia woman who died while protecting her 6-month-old daughter, who survived in a toilet for roughly 13 hours after a harrowing attack earlier this month.

Jessica Arrendale, 37, is being remembered as a hero for saving the girl's life despite being fatally shot Sept. 13 by her husband, Antoine Davis, a 30-year-old former Marine and Iraq War veteran, in their home in an Atlanta suburb. Arrendale tried to defend herself from a drunken, bat-wielding Davis, but was ultimately overpowered and struck several times, police said. The couple's 6-month-old daughter, Cobie, also suffered traumatic head injuries and may also have been hit with the bat during the incident.

But it was what happened next that Arrendale's loved ones say showed her devotion to her child. Seeking refuge in a bathroom, the mother shielded the baby until Davis stormed in and opened fire with an assault rifle, Arrendale's mother, Teresa Ianniello, told WSB Radio. Somehow, Arrendale was able to drop the tot into the toilet, where she remained out of Davis' view and ultimately survived for 13 hours, Ianniello said.

“He shot her and they (police) don't know how she was able to twist her body and fall literally in the opposite direction,” Ianniello said.

The girl miraculously survived by falling into the water-filled toilet rather than onto the floor, Ianniello said.

“She had pure will,” Ianniello said. “She wanted that baby to live.”

Ianniello believes Davis intended to kill both his wife and daughter but was unable to see the injured girl since she was covered by her mother's body. Davis then fatally shot himself.

“She was the hero because her last breath was saving the child,” Ianniello said.

The baby was discovered by authorities after officers stormed the home. Officials said the girl is being treated for head injuries and hypothermia.

A memorial service for Arrendale was held Sunday. She is survived by her two daughters, Naomi Turner, 15, and Cobie Arrendale, as well as mother Teresa Ianniello and brother Daniel Ianniello.

“An amazing mother, daughter, sister and friend was taken way too soon,” friend Leslie Tidwell Jordan wrote on GoFundMe.com, where more than $20,000 has been donated in Arrendale's memory. “Jessica was one of the most beautiful people I have ever met. This fund has been set-up for the two children that she has left behind.”
