Judge allows allegations of nearly starving child to death to go to grand jury

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, July 4, 2014 11:13 AM EDT

A Kentucky judge has ordered three people charged with nearly starving to death a young child held on $10,000 bond each.

WYMT-TV in Hazard reported that the cases of 31-year-old James M. Abner, 32-year-old Jessica Schneider and 54-year-old Sherry King will go to a grand jury. Each is charged with criminal abuse.

The Knox County Attorney says the trio starved a 3-year-old boy nearly to death in January. Prosecutors say the boy was so malnourished, he spent 20 days in critical condition at UK Children's Hospital.

Defense attorneys have argued that the boy was born prematurely, weighing only a pound-and-a-half at birth, which caused ongoing health problems.

Investigators say the boy is now four years old and in custody of other relatives.
