— The mother and stepfather accused in the death of a 2-year-old boy were among the 89 indictments handed down by the Raleigh County Grand Jury.

Brandy Smallwood, 28, and James Green, 24, both of Fairdale, were charged Feb. 10 in connection with the death of 2-year-old Graydon Morgan.

Green was indicted for first degree murder, death of a child by child abuse, child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury, child neglect resulting in death and child neglect resulting in serious bodily injury.

The indictment against Smallwood if for death of a child by child abuse, child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury, child neglect resulting in death and child neglect resulting in serious bodily injury.

Both Green and Smallwood waived their rights to a preliminary hearing in Raleigh County Magistrate Court Feb. 19.

The two were charged after the West Virginia State Police responded to a 911 call reporting an unresponsive and bloody toddler at a trailer in Fairdale Feb. 8.

Police reported the child’s injuries, including bruising, were indicative of child abuse.

Graydon was taken to Raleigh General Hospital, then to Women and Children’s Hospital in Charleston where he died.

Also indicted for first degree murder were Dominic Paige, 23, and Lavonte Paige, 18,  for their part in the death of 54-year-old Danny Kennedy in November 2012.

Police reported that three people attempted to turn their car around in Kennedy’s driveway on Cohen Street. Their vehicle got stuck in his yard, and a verbal dispute ensued.

Kennedy was shot once and died at a local hospital.

The third suspect, Antonio LeJune Wade, 28, was not charged with murder, but was charged with unlawful possession of a deadly weapon by a convicted felon.
