    2 face murder in death of young child


    ANDERSON — The mother and stepfather of an Indiana child who died three days before his second birthday now are facing murder charges.

    The Herald Bulletin reports charges were recently amended against 24-year-old Alyson Stephen and 26-year-old Jacob Wootton, who were earlier charged with neglect of a dependent resulting in death. The charges stem from the October beating death of 23-month-old Ryder Stephen.



    And nothing updated in the court site...
