Denver, Co – I’ve never met Shenell Phillips. She may be a real sweet gal who has a great personality and an amazing ability to pull sunshine out of her ass whenever the days get dreary. She may be considered really good friend material to some, even good enough to allow her to watch their children, but to me…Hell no! On February 28, 2009 police and emergency crews responded to a three-car accident along East 56th Avenue near Tower Road. The reports say around 2:55 a.m. 28-year-old Shenell Phillips was driving drunk and under the influence in the wrong lane on eastbound 56th Avenue when she ran head-on into two other cars.
Antonia Gutierrez, 59, and Juanita Dominguez, 59, who were in the car that Phillips hit, were injured. They are in fair condition at Denver Health Medical Center. A Chevrolet Classic also was hit. The woman inside that car wasn’t hurt.
In the car with Phillips was 17-month-old Ahnesty Brook. Shenell Phillips was her God Mother. Sadly, the child died as a result of her injuries. The child’s mother, Ashaka Hicks, is eight months pregnant and already has two boys. She is devastated over the loss of her daughter.
“Why didn’t my friend bring my baby home instead of taking her with her while she was out drinking and doing drugs,” said Ms. Hicks. “I only live up the street from her she didn’t have to take her out at three in the morning.”
I really feel for this woman, but I cannot help to wonder why Shenell had her daughter to begin with. They had to of been very close, Shenell was the child’s God Mother, so I’m assuming this mother must of had some prior knowledge of Shenell’s drinking problem and drug habit. I’m not trying to condemn the woman, but if she did know about the drinking and the drugs, why did she leave her daughter in this woman’s care?
Shenell Phillips is charged with child abuse resulting in death, two counts of vehicular homicide, four counts of vehicular assault and two counts of DUI. Phillips has an extensive record that includes assault, disorderly conduct, failure to appear, forgery, theft over $15,000, menacing with a deadly weapon, burglary and wrongs to minors. She remains in custody in the Denver County Jail; her bail has been set at $250,000.
