Father of 2-year-old Found Dead in Mingo Junction Home in Custody


The father of a two-year-old found dead at a home in the 300 block of Lincoln Avenue was arrested Feb. 3 in Jefferson County.

Adrian Wolfe, 33, turned himself in to authorities and was taken to the Jefferson County Justice Center pending charges of child endangerment, according to Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla.

Wolfe was in surgery in Youngstown last week and was unable to come in for questioning.

The child’s mother, Channe Fleischer was arrested and charged with child endangerment after authorities found her two-year-old son dead.

Abdalla said the baby was bruised and suffered burns to the top of his feet.

Fleischer claimed the baby fell down the steps and was hurt by another child. She told authorities she was afraid Children Services would be involved and take the baby away.
