More has been learned about the alleged murder of a child in Hopkins County that resulted in the arrest of an Earlington woman.
Sources say 24-year old Kelley Kirby of Wilson Street, Earlington was the step-mother of the 4-year old boy who died this April after she said he fell while playing on a skate board.
The toddler was in the care of Ms. Kirby alone the afternoon he was injured by whatever happened, and he would die from his injuries at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.
A news release from the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office says the investigation determined the boy’s injuries were not consistent with a fall and that a Grand Jury indicted Ms. Kirby on murder and criminal abuse charges Tuesday, resulting in her arrest.
She remains in the Hopkins County Jail on 250-thousand dollars bond.
