Two Indicted in Child Abuse Case

A Choctaw County, Ala., grand jury has indicted two people in connection with a child abuse case in Butler.

21-year-old Tineisha Butler and 25-year-old Lakendrick Holley have both been indicted in a case involving Butler's child.

The two were arrested in January for allegedly beating and starving Butler's two-year-old daughter.

Choctaw County Sheriff James Lovette said trial dates for the defendants will likely be set within the next two to three weeks.

    I totally agree with the first comment but, what about family members or friends that knew this couple's child....they too will be punished; if not on earth, it will be in heaven. These two did the abuse &all others that knew them allowed it & so contributed to it!!

    They need to beat and starve these two and make them suffer as the child suffered at their hands. They should never again be allowed to have contact with children. EVER! They knew exactly what they were doing, they did it knowingly and willingly. They should also never receive any kind of government assistance for any, food stamps, help with educational expenses. They are obviously two people who are not appreciative of the gift they were given. To abuse a child or the elderly, you must be one evil individual. Hang them both once they are beaten and hungry.
