HARTFORD, Ky. (WTVQ) – A couple was arrested following indictment for reportedly abusing their two-month old child, according to State Police.
Investigators say 26-year old Stephanie Shepherd, of Horse Branch and 26-year old Nicolas Wilson, of Horse Branch, were indicted by an Ohio County Grand Jury earlier this month. State Police say the couple was taken into custody without incident.

The couple was lodged in the Ohio County Detention Center in Hartford.
The case is still under investigation.
