Woman charged with abuse after toddler suffers broken arm

RICHMOND — Richmond police have charged a woman with criminal abuse following an investigation into a 20-month-old child’s injuries.

Kayleigh Norris, 22, was charged Wednesday in connection with an incident that occurred in June 2012, according to an RPD news release.

Police were summoned June 9 to Pattie A. Clay Hospital (now Baptist Health) to investigate a report of a toddler with a suspicious arm bone fracture. The child was being treated for a broken humerus.

Investigators learned the toddler had suffered two previous broken bones while in Norris’ care, according to the release, which did not disclose whether Norris was related to the child. No additional details would be released, it stated.

Norris was charged with first-degree criminal abuse and booked into the Madison County Detention Center at 3 p.m. Wednesday. She was released 10 a.m. Thursday on a $25,000 cash bond, according to a jail official.

2 more arrested on sealed indictments

Two more people have been arrested on the strength of sealed grand jury indictments issued at the end of December.

Robert L. Palmer Jr, 43, of Calumet Drive, turned himself in Sunday at the Richmond Police Department, according to an RPD news release.

He was charged with two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. Police allege Palmer sold 14 oxycodone pills during a covert RPD Narcotics Unit investigation in April.

On Jan. 18, Ashley N. Bane, 19, of Foxhaven Drive was the sixteenth person arrested on the strength of a sealed indictment.

She was taken into custody at her home and was charged with two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. Eleven oxycodone pills were purchased from Bane during a July covert narcotics investigation, according to the RPD.

A total of 18 sealed indictments were handed down by a Madison grand jury in late December. Other people arrested on the indictments in connection with covert narcotics investigations are Carl Ingram Jr., 38; Robin L. Ingram, 45; Altheia G. Tichenor, 53; Reanell C. Caldwell, 36; Mackie R. Rhodus, 42; Greg Farmer, 31; David L. Moore, 24; Kimberly D. Hellard, 37; Shamika M. Flood, 33; Blake J. Chadwell, 27; Anthony S. Harris, 29; Keith Little, 36; and Joshua York, 23.
