Woman indicted on four counts
A Fostoria woman was served a four-count indictment last week at the Seneca County jail charging her with child endangerment, abduction and attempted deception to obtain a dangerous drug, according to court documents.
April L. Walker, 38, faces two counts of child endangerment, a third-degree felony, one count of abduction, a third-degree felony, and one count of attempted deception to obtain a dangerous drug, a fifth-degree felony, for allegedly restraining the liberty of a mentally or physically handicapped child under the age of 21 and also torturing or cruelly abusing the same child. Those alleged incidents occurred Nov. 15 and Nov. 25, according to her indictment.
Nov. 24, Walker also allegedly attempted to obtain a dangerous drug, her indictment states.
Walker, who is serving a sentence at the jail on a charge of obstructing official business, is scheduled to appear Thursday for an arraignment.
A call was placed to Capt. Pat Brooks of the Fostoria Police Department Thursday evening for more information about the alleged incidents.
