Jefferson County Mothers Charged with Aggravated Murder


Two Jefferson County mothers have been charged with aggravated murder after authorities said they killed their infant sons.

Sara Ann Lathem and Channe Fleischer were originally charged with child endangering, but now a grand jury has indicted the two women on more serious charges thanks to preliminary autopsy reports.

Lathem is accused of killing her 5-month-old baby at a New Alexandria home and Fleischer is accused of killing her 2 year old son in Mingo Junction.

Both mothers will appear in court next Wednesday for their arraignments.
