Parents arrested, accused of child abuse

January 12, 2010

Two Anderson parents accused of child abuse have been arrested and jailed. Doctors say their 3-month-old son suffered a skull fracture and other serious injuries. Investigators say Brittney Bland, 20, and Justin Sheets, 22, carried the injured baby three blocks to the hospital instead of calling 911. Doctors found evidence that the boy had previously suffered two broken legs and a broken arm. Child Protective Services has taken custody of the couple’s 16-month-old child.
