Pitt County couple charged with child abuse
Posted August 30, 2013
A Greenville man and woman accused of hurting their 3-month-old have been charged with child abuse, the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office said Friday.
Investigators said family members who hadn’t seen the infant for some time became concerned and went to the child’s home. They saw the baby’s condition and called an ambulance.
Deputies were called to Vidant Medical Center to investigate and said the child had signs of neglect and obvious physical injuries.
Juana Torres Sutton, 19, and Heriberto Mandoza Olguin, 20, both of the 400 block of Northwest Acres Drive, were each charged with negligent child abuse/serious physical injury and held at the Pitt County Detention Center.
Sutton was held under a $50,000 secured bond. Olguin was released after posting a $25,000 secured bond.
