TWO women were charged with murder following the death of a boy believed to be a victim of persistent child abuse.
Prosecutors on Friday April indicted Wright and Rachel R. Wright, both 26, of murder, serious battery and neglect of children, which resulted in death.
The indictment comes after April Wright’s 10-year-old brother Leviticus Kuchta, who was found dead on October 12 at her home in Merrillville, Indiana.
Police officers discovered “deplorable living conditions” after being called onto the property in response to a report of an unresponsive child, according to the Times of Northwest Indiana.
Leviticus had been in April Wright’s care and was pronounced dead in the house.
Unfortunately, child protection services also removed a 3 year old child from the property.
Investigators found that Rachel and April Wright’s initial statements were not true.
A later autopsy revealed multiple injuries “consistent with a history of persistent physical abuse of the child,” Merrillville deputy chief of police Kostas Nuses told the newspaper.
Officers then attempted to contact April and Rachel Wright again to re-interview them, but the women were difficult to find.
Officials eventually learned that the couple was in a family member’s house in Valparaiso 15 miles away and were subsequently arrested and detained.
Both women are currently being detained in the Lake County Prison without any bonds.
