Neglect of a Dependent arrest


     On July 26th, around 3:50 p.m., Evansville Police Officers were dispatched to a medical emergency in the 1600 block of S. Kentucky Ave. Officers arrived and met with the victim’s mother. She told the officers her 11-month-old child had burns on the face and body and that she believed the child’s father had caused the injuries. The child was taken to a local hospital for treatment and then transferred to an Indianapolis hospital for further care. A medical examination established the child had 3rd degree burns, a fractured arm, and was suffering from dehydration. 

    During the investigation, police determined the infant had been under the care of her father and his girlfriend at an Evansville residence when the injures occurred. Police located 25-year-old KHAUYL HUNTER and his girlfriend, 19-year-old AISHA KINYANJUI, and both have been taken into custody. They were arrested for Neglect of a Dependent, a Level 1 Felony and booked into the Vandenburgh County Confinement Center.
