Initially booked into Johnston County Jail on charges of Child Abuse and Domestic Violence in the presence of a minor child, both Lindsay Wolff, 33, and Christopher Hairell, 35, are now facing murder charges after their two month old son, Kaylin passed away Saturday night due to injuries he had sustained, according to a statement from the Johnston County Sheriff's Office. Bond has been set at $1 million each.
On Tuesday July 2nd, deputies were called to Mercy Hospital in Tishomingo, Oklahoma concerning an unresponsive infant that was displaying signs of abuse according to hospital staff. Upon arrival, the Undersheriff Gary Dodd conducted interviews with the parents.
"It does appear, based upon the interviews conduced, both individuals were underneath the influence of an illegal drug [in a statement by a different officer, said to be marijuana and methamphetamine,] at the time that these injuries may have occurred. And both, I believe, have a history with illegal drugs in the past," said Undersheriff Gary Dodd. Police said there were obvious signs that the child's injuries were non-accidental.
Kaylin was airlifted to OU Children's Hospital in critical condition and was admitted to the ICU with a broken leg and severe head trauma. He died on Saturday evening.
“The death of the child resulted in complaints of first degree murder being filed with the district attorney on both parents due to the fact that the child died as a result of child abuse, which in this instance was aggravated," Johnston County Sheriff Jon Smith said in a written statement.
"Love your children, cherish them, don’t hurt them, or we will hunt you down," the Sheriff's Office said in ending their statement on their Facebook page.
