In addition to being charged with the murder of his girlfriend’s 2-year-old, Ronnie Crabtree now faces new charges for failure to financially support his own three children.

A Madison County Grand Jury returned an indictment Thursday against Crabtree, 26, for two counts of flagrant non-support. According to the indictment, Crabtree owes $10,041.51 in back child support for three minor children. If convicted, Crabtree could serve up to an additional 10 years in prison for the new charges.

The same grand jury indicted Crabtree last week on one count of murder for the August death of 2-year-old Callie Robinson. He and the child’s mother, Verona “V.J.” Brinegar, each are charged with the capital offense allegedly for suffocating, beating and burning the toddler.

Richmond Police Detective Eric Long testified during a preliminary hearing in the murder case that V.J. allegedly pleaded with an acquaintance to take her children, because V.J. was pregnant again and she and Ronnie could not afford the children they already had.

Callie died two days later, Long testified.
