COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – A couple has been formally charged after a two-year-old child suffered multiple injuries and cardiac arrest in February.
Columbus police are searching for Angel Foster-Burks and Clayton Burks, who are facing felony child endangering charges after a two-year-old girl was brought into Nationwide Children’s Hospital with suspicious injuries.
The child, who was not expected to survive, arrived at the hospital just before 10:30 p.m. on Feb. 4 and police responded to calls from the hospital on reports of possible child neglect.
