Couple Charged With Child Abuse Scheduled for Hearling
A Telford couple charged with aggravated child abuse and neglect are scheduled for a court hearing today. Joe and Charlotte Whitaker were indicted in September after taking their son to the hospital. Once examined, doctors determine the 7-month old boy suffered from Shaken Baby Syndrome so severe that his brain shifted two-and-a-half centimeters. He was also malnourished and only weighed 15 pounds. Authorities say the baby also had a broken bone in his leg that had already started to heal prompting them to believe that the abuse was ongoing. The Whitakers maintain they donít know how their child got the injuries. The infant survived his injuries, but could have permanent brain damage as well as vision problems Ė possibly total blindness.
