2 Arrested for Child Neglect

A Crestview woman and an acquaintance are arrested on charges of child neglect and abuse.

19-year-old Janielle Marie Destin is charged with child neglect without great harm.

She's accused of leaving an infant in his car seat for extended periods of time, putting him in a back storage room at a local bar for several hours while she played darts. On at least one occasion the baby fell out of his stroller and was found on the floor.

Destin is also accused of failing to take the baby to follow-up doctors' appointments for a respiratory infection.

Destin's acquaintance, 37-year-old David John Parker of Baker has been arrested in Michigan on charges of aggravated child abuse.

Parker told authorities the infant suffered skull fractures from falling while being bathed in the kitchen sink, but medical professionals say the baby's injuries weren't consistent with that explanation.
