May 15, 2013

A Kansas City, Mo., couple has been charged in connection with child abuse involving a 9-year-old girl who was restrained in their basement, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Lacey A. Chaney, 27 (11/16/1985), and Timothy A. Phillips, 29 (dob 5/14/1983), each face Abuse of Neglect of A child, Endangering the Welfare of a Child 1st Degree and Felonious Resraint.

According to court records, a school nurse reported that a 9-year-old student may have been the victim of abuse. When Jackson County Sheriff’s deputies responded parents acknowledged she was kept in the basement and as punishment for a recent school suspension had been locked in the unfinished basement during the day. Deputies noted that the basement was partially covered in carpet, saturated in dirt, and had exposed sewage.  

Prosecutors requested a cash bond of $100,000.
