Saltillo residents indicted in connection with death of grandson, 3

Amy Brasher

Two Saltillo residents have been indicted by the Hardin County Grand Jury in connection with the death of their young grandson, authorities said.

Jeffrey Brasher

Amy Lynn Brasher is facing charges of first degree murder and aggravated child abuse. Jeffrey Paul Brasher is charged with aggravated child endangerment.
Hardin County Sheriff Johnny Alexander said Monday that the child, who died last year on or around Dec. 26 – identified only as “L.C.B.” in the indictments – was the Brashers’ 3-year-old grandson. He declined to address the cause of death.
Although there is one alleged victim, Amy is charged with two counts of first degree murder. One count alleges she killed the child in the perpetration of aggravated child abuse. Another claims she intentionally and with premeditation killed the boy. The third count, for aggravated child abuse, contends she knowingly abused him, resulting in serious bodily injury.
Jeffrey Brasher is indicted on one count of aggravated child endangerment and is accused of failing to protect a child of whom he had custody, resulting in serious bodily injury.
The Brashers are scheduled to be arraigned in Hardin County General Sessions Court on April 15. Amy Brasher’s bond is set at $500,000 and Jeffrey Brasher’s bond is set at $100,000. Both remained held at the Hardin County jail on Monday.
The local Grand Jury met March 25. The Brasher indictments were unsealed when the defendants were taken into custody.

    I just ha e to believe there is a special place in hl for them 2. I feel the case worker that placed him there should be in prison to accessory. Why didn’t she do a child welfare check were she had placed that baby. Just like the one in my son’s case they never took him out of system and can’t tell you today were the child is.

    I,myself, have lost a child and I can assure u these two will get exactly what they deserve in prison and I totally agree with it.

    I never knew this happened and I am from Savannah does anybody know exactly what happened to the little boy? My child’s father is in jail and called me today to let me know that the guy was brought to his pod and very quickly rushed out before anybody knew who he was You can only imagine what would happen if they would’ve known who the man was and what he had done . I believe anybody who does anything to a child deserves exactly what happened to the child happened to them.
