gavel book 300HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (3/5/18) — Madisonville parents were indicted on charges of first-degree criminal abuse of their child.

According to Hopkins Circuit Court documents, a grand jury handed down the indictments recently to 22-year-old Roger Blair and Alyssa Magana, 22.

Madisonville Police Department previously reported serving warrants at their West Broadway Street home Dec. 21 after investigating a call from Baptist Urgent Care Nov. 8 concerning a 14-month-old that was being seen for a minor illness. Healthcare examiners told police there were several bruises on the child.

MPD indicated detectives responded immediately and the child was taken to a children’s hospital in Louisville for forensic examination, and then placed into protective custody.

In other court news, the grand jury returned an indictment on first-degree arson.

Jason Shomer, 33 of Madisonville, was charged Dec. 28 after MPD investigated a fire that started after midnight at a Grapevine Road woman’s home.
