The child, whose age was not given, is not related to the suspect. Epps is being held in the Madison County jail in lieu of $30,000 bond.
In the second case, Melvin Charles Jarrett, 48, is charged with torture/willful abuse of a child. Jarrett's arrest on Wednesday follows the investigation into a domestic violence incident in which a child in his family suffered physical injuries.
The nature of those injuries was not disclosed.
Curious. I've done 3 stories in the past year from Madison County, and 20 from Alabama. Are they just better at reporting these things, or is something else going on?
