A court date has not been set for the local social worker indicted for mishandling records in a case that led to a Oak Grove child’s death.
41-year old Donna Monroe Currey of Elkton was indicted on one count of tampering with public records Friday by the Christian County Grand Jury, which is a Class D felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
Ms. Currey was the social worker in the case of 3-year old Alayna Adair, who was allegedly beaten to death by her father—22-year old Charles Morris of Pembroke-Oak Grove Road—last July. Adair had been to Gateway Medical Center for a previous injury and Currey is accused of including records of visits never made in the girl’s case file. Currey went so far as to say Morris appeared to be a “loving father.” The young girl would die from alleged abuse soon after.
Currey was also the caseworker for 9-year old Amy Dye, who was allegedly murdered by her brother February 4th of last year near their Dogwood Road home near Trenton. The state’s handling of that case has been widely criticized as well, though no charges against Currey—who was working from the Elkton state office at that time—have ever been filed regarding that situation.
