Child in Whitley County calls 911 on grandparents

WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – A 911 call from a child in Whitley County Saturday led to the arrest of two grandparents.

A deputy says he found a knife in the home, and a piece of wood with nails that had “pain/may cause death” written on it.

Around 4 A.M. Saturday, the deputy went to a home on highway 779 in the rockholds community.

He heard yelling and screaming and found two adults with injuries who smelled like alcohol.

He says two kids under fifteen identified the adults as their grandparents.

Those two, 55-year-old Scott Powers and 51-year-old Teresa Bunch have been charged with assault and endangering the welfare of a minor.
