A Pike County woman was arrested on child endangerment charges, following suspicious injuries involving her 4-month old child.
Sheriff James Nelson reports that on September 16th, 24-year-old, Lindsay C. Bumgardner, of State Route 124 was charged with Felony-2 Child Endangerment.
The sheriff's office was notified of a 4-month-old male infant, belonging to Jeffery D Burris and Lindsay C. Bumgardner, who was brought into Cincinnati Children's Hospital for a broken arm. The hospital discovered numerous broken bones, healing at various ages. After further testing, the infant's injuries were described as “non- accidental” and were a result of severe child abuse.
After an interview with Mrs. Bumgardner, sheriff department investigators determined it was clear that Bumgardner failed to protect her child from severe harm.
Lindsay Bumgardner went before a judge September 18th, and received a bond of $30,000.
A case was presented against both Bumgardner and Jeffery Burris will be taken to the Pike County Grand Jury this month, for their consideration of charges.
