The Hopkins County Grand Jury during its May 12 session signed at least 55 indictments against 42 people, pushing those cases forward for further prosecution. Offenses ranged from injury to a child and aggravated assault to possession of controlled substances, fraud and theft.
At least half a dozen individuals were indicted on more than one charge, while in other cases more than one individual was implicated in the same offense.
Robert James Aufdenberg and Katie Lynn Maynard were both indicted for injury to a child. The charge alleges both failed to seek medical treatment for their child. Aufdenberg, 20, and Maynard, 19, were arrested early April 2 by police, following interviews. Police were called when their baby, less than 3 months old, was treated at Hopkins County Memorial Hospital Emergency Room for second and third degree burns to his foot and head.
“After the interview, we determined to arrest both for injury to a child by reckless omission with serious bodily injury, a second-degree felony charge. We filed on that charge because the injuries occurred on Monday afternoon and they didn’t take the child in until Wednesday morning about 1:30 a.m. That’s two days the child was not provided medical care for his injuries. Nothing was done; he suffered for two days without medical attention. Both parents were arrested,” Sulphur Springs Police Investigator Rusty Stillwagoner said April 2.
Medical professionals at HCMH diagnosed the baby as having a spiral fracture to his upper arm and an impact fracture to his lower leg, in addition to the second and third degree burns. He was treated at Parkland Hospital for his burns, then transferred to Children’s Hospital for treatment of fractures, which included additional injuries in different stages of healing. The child at that time was placed into the custody of Child Protective Services, SSPD investigators noted in April.
