Laurel County Sheriff John Root says a woman is facing a criminal abuse charge after deputies were called to St. Joseph Hospital in London where a child under the age of 12 was brought in with injuries. They say they learned 23 year old Dana Lorraine Casey allegedly watched the child being assaulted but did nothing to stop it. They say she also failed to get the child medical attention immediately. Deputies say the child was brought to the hospital three hours after the assault and was treated for injuries before being transferred to the University of Kentucky Medical Center. Casey was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center. The investigation is continuing.
