A Jamesport woman faces felony charges in Daviess County after alleged incidents involving a female juvenile family member.
Forty-two-year-old Natalie Murphy has been charged with abuse or neglect of a child and two counts of first-degree endangering the welfare of a child by creating substantial risk. Bond was denied. A bond hearing is scheduled for April 4th.
A probable cause statement accuses Natalie Murphy of abuse allegations similar to that of her husband, Shaun Murphy, who was previously charged with multiple felonies. Natalie Murphy is also accused of not reporting to law enforcement when the juvenile said she had been molested by Shaun Murphy and ensuring the safety of other children in the home.
Forty-four-year-old Shaun Murphy has been charged with the felonies of statutory sodomy or attempted statutory sodomy with a person less than 14 years of age, three counts of first-degree child molestation, and abuse or neglect of a child. His bond was also denied. A bond hearing is scheduled for April 18th.
