Mount Holly Parents Facing Felony Child Abuse Charges


by Caryn Little

MOUNT HOLLY, N.C.--Police arrested two people in Mount Holly on felony child abuse charges after their child was taken to the hospital with broken bones. 

Investigators say 18-year-old Carmen Holden and 25-year-old William Walker Jr. told authorities the child rolled off the couch.  However, hospital personnel determined the broken bones on the 2-month-old happened over a period of time and not during one incident. 

Walker has been charged with five counts of felony child abuse.  He is currently in the Gaston County Jail on a $150,000 bond. 

Holden has been charged with one count of felony child abuse and four misdemeanor child abuse charges.  She is also in the Gaston County Jail but was given a $50,000 bond.
