ROCK HILL, S.C. (WJZY) -- A Rock Hill couple charged with the death of a 4-year-old girl found “stuffed in a drawer” were both denied bond Wednesday.
Jackleen Mullen, 23, and her boyfriend Audrevious Williams, 26, are both charged with homicide by abuse or neglect.
Around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, police were called to a home on Gentle Breeze Lane in Rock Hill. Detectives say Mullen told them her daughter, who was physically handicapped and had special needs, was staying with family. Instead, authorities found the girl dead in the couple’s bedroom.
The child showed signs of blunt force trauma and respiratory distress, detectives said.
WSOC-TV Channel 9 reported in 2016 that Mullen was charged with unlawful conduct toward a child after giving birth to a premature baby that tested positive for cocaine -- the same child who was found dead on Tuesday.
