Two Ohio parents have been arrested after their newborn twins were found with broken bones and injuries, which police say were caused by abuse.
SueAnn Carter, 27, and Codi Alexander Ronald Allen, 20, were arrested after a social worker notified police that a pair of five-week-old babies had been brought to Nationwide Children’s Hospital with suspicious injuries.
Initially, the children had been taken to the Southern Ohio Medical Center for possible broken arms and eye bleeds.
It is not clear if it was the parents who were taken there.
SueAnn Carter, 27, and Codi Alexander Ronald Allen, 20, face charges of child endangerment and criminal assault.
Seeing the apparent severity of the injuries, the babies were taken to the children’s hospital, where it was found that they had broken bones in their arms, legs, ribs, along with bruises on their bodies and faces, and blood hemorrhages in their eyes.
Police were called after hospital staff suspected the injuries were not accidental, and child services removed the children from the parents’ care.
After interviewing family members, the police finally arrested Carter and Allen.
The couple faces charges of child endangerment and criminal assault.
They are being held on $340,000 bond and are due to appear in Portsmouth Municipal Court on February 23, 2023.
The investigation into the abuse is ongoing.
