Judge Sets Date for Child Abuse, Additional Felony Cases

Ohio County Circuit Judge David Sims on Wednesday set July 28 as a trial date for Whittaney A. Hillberry to face five counts of child abuse resulting in serious injury and one count of child abuse resulting in injury.

Police arrested Hillberry, 23, of the Roney’s Point Apartments in Triadelphia, on Jan. 22 after an investigation revealed she allegedly caused injuries to the then-2-month-old child between Feb. 20 and March 9, 3013.

While the official indictment documents do not spell out specifics of the crimes, they show the child suffered multiple head, scalp, nasal, ear, eye, finger, and thigh injuries.
