Family Of Killed Toddler Says Mother Is Innocent
CATAWBA COUNTY, NC - A Catawba man accused of killing 20-month-old boy and abusing his three-year-old sister in in jail, while the mother of the children bailed out of jail Friday on a $41,000 bond.
On Friday, their family was standing by their mother's claims of innocence.
"She would never put her kids in danger intentionally. She had no idea. He was very deceiving to all of us,” said Maggie Ervin, a Conover, NC resident.
"She's a very good mother. She loves her children and what they're saying about her isn't true. She's a victim in all this,” said Ervin.
Neighbors say the couple lived here with the kids for just over two months. During that entire time they say they never saw the kids playing outside. Another neighbor says she thinks the kids were often left home alone.
