A Jasper County judge has given Child Protective Services and a mother joint custody of a five-year-old boy investigators say was beaten so severely by his father, the child is still in a Houston hospital.
Investigators say the boy’s father chased him around the yard with a chain saw last month and beat the youngster.
The child’s father, John Cornelius, 24, Cornelius’ girlfriend, Jessie Waddell, 27, and her mother, Wanda Macks, 54, are charged with injury to a child. The two women are also charged with failure to report his injuries.
The child’s biological mother is from East Texas.
The judge ruled Wednesday that the mother will have joint managing custody with CPS.
The agency will visit the child’s home and make sure the little boy is taken care of once he’s released from Texas Children’s Hospital.Technorati Tags: From,Failure,Report,Mother,Custody,Child,Back,Father,Chainsaw,Activism,Best,Abuse,Battle,Mediation,Support,Children,Domestic,Violence,rights,Civil,Corrupt,Relations,Court,Reform,Courts,Texas,Great,news,Miss,authorities,September,Scott,Lawrence,Jasper,Protective,Services,Houston,hospital,Investigators,yard,youngster,John,Cornelius,Jessie,Waddell,Wanda,Macks,injury,East,agency,fathers,injuriesNote: Cross posted from [wp angelfury] Battered Mothers Rights - A Human Rights Issue.
