Marshall County Prosecuting Attorney Nelson Chipman amended the charges against 24 year old Krysti Lavanway and 21 year old Shane Weedling Thursday shortly after Lavanway entered a plea of guilty to Neglect of a Dependent Resulting in Death before Marshall Superior Court I Judge Robert Bowen.
In court documents Chipman alleges that Lavanway did knowingly kill another human being on September 19th.
A charge of Murder was also filed against Shane Weedling. Chipman indicated that Weedling did knowingly kill another human being, Serenity Wilson. His initial charge of Aggravate Battery, a level 1 felony states that he knowingly or intentionally inflicted injury on Serenity Wilson, his girlfriend’s daughter while babysitting her on September 18th. That injury created a substantial risk of death and did result in the death of Serenity Wilson on September 19th.
