Colwell was indicted late last month by a Warren County grand jury on two counts of murder, felonious assault, and two counts of endangering children following an investigation of the death of infant, Cayden Colwell, who was found unresponsive in a Clearcreek Twp, home in April.

Cayden, 2 months old, died April 16 after being taken off life support at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, according to Clearcreek Twp. Chief John Terrill.

Colwell’s 3-year-old son also was examined after the incident and was found to have multiple bruises on his body, including on the shoulder, cheek, neck and abdomen, according to Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell.
