Two Charged with Endangerment of Child
By West Kentucky Star Staff
SYMSONIA - Two people face felony endangerment charges, after a Graves County deputy responded to a home to check on a young child.

Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon said a deputy went to check on a four-year-old child at a home in Symsonia on Wednesday after being contacted by the child's father, who told them his wife had been arrested in Ballard County, and his daughter had been left at the home.

As the deputy arrived, the grandfather was there to pick up the child, who was alone outside the home. Deputies found 21-year-old Brandon Kyle Daniels of Castalian Springs, TN, asleep inside. A deputy was able to awaken Daniels after several attempts, and said Daniels appeared to be under the influence and could not remember who was supposed to be in the home with him.  

Daniels told deputies that the child's mother, 26-year-old Brittany Graves, of Westmoreland, TN, had left the child with him, and he was not aware that the child had gotten out of the home. He was arrested on a charge of 1st degree wanton endangerment. 

During a search of Daniels at the jail, deputies reportedly found a plastic baggie of meth. He was additionally charged with 1st degree promoting contraband and possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.

Graves was also arrested and charged with 1st degree wanton endangerment.
