New Charge Filed In Harnett Drowning Case

Posted July 25, 2001

— Another charge has been filed against a Harnett County woman charged with the drowning of her 4-year-old stepson.

Tuesday, a charge of misdemeanor child abuse was filed against Sandra Odom.

Earlier this month, Odom was charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Jarrett Odom.

The little boy is believed to have drowned in the family pool. His 4-year-old twin, Garrett, was injured in that same incident.

Odom remains free on bond. Her next court appearance is scheduled for late August.
