Stepmother in child abuse case faces new charges

HOUSTON – New charges have been filed against woman accused in a case of child abuse.

Tammi Bleimeyer, the stepmother of Jordan Bleimeyer, is now facing a charge of first-degree felony injury to a child.

There is also a warrant out for her arrest, according to county records

Bleimeyer, 34, made national headlines last year after being accused of locking her 5-year-old stepson in a closet under the stairs inside their home and starving him nearly to death.

Deputies with Harris County Precinct 4 took custody away from Jordan. They said he was severely malnourished and had many bumps and bruises.

Tammi Bleimeyer was arrested and charged with endangering a child, but later posted bond and was released.

Her husband, Bradley Bleimeyer, who is Jordan’s biological father, was also arrested and charged with endangering a child but held in jail with no bond.

Tammi Bleimeyer is the biological mother of seven children. She was pregnant with her seventh child when she was allegedly locking and starving Jordan under the stairs.

Child Protective Services said six of Tammi Bleimyer’s biological children are living with relatives and the seventh is in foster care.
