NORTH VERNON, Ind. (AP) — A southeastern Indiana woman has been charged with neglect of a dependent and criminal confinement after a straitjacket allegedly was put on a 22-year-old woman in her care.
The 47-year-old North Vernon woman was one of three people arrested this week following a seven-month investigation by the Indiana State Police.
A 54-year-old Butlerville woman also was charged with neglect of a dependent and criminal confinement, and a 54-year-old man was charged with neglect. Police said the victim was in their custody in 2019 and early this year.
All three were being held in the Jennings County Jail pending court hearings.
North Vernon and Butlerville are in Jennings County, about 68 miles southeast of Indianapolis.
