Step-Grandma found guilty for abuse that led to SA toddler’s death, sentenced to 88 years

The child died two days after Christmas in 2012. He was abused, neglected and malnourished.

Three people were charged in this case. Among them is, Josiah’s stepmother, Crystal Williams. She pleaded guilty to injury to a child, a first-degree felony.

KENS 5 sat in court last June to hear the chilling testimonies, as Williams awaited her fate.

“Josiah’s cause of death is listed as ‘dehydration in a battered, underweight child’,” said Dr. Samantha Evans of the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s office. Evans performed the autopsy on Josiah.

Tears and sobs filled the courtroom as the jury was played a video showing paramedics examining 5-year-old Josiah Williams after they found him dead inside of a southeast-side home.

Investigators said the boy suffered months of abuse at the hands of his stepmother, Crystal Williams, his father, Charleston Williams, and

Sister and CSI testify about toddler’s death

VERSAILLES – “The state calls Cheyenne Chadwell,” Ripley County Prosecutor Ric Hertel announced Jan. 13 in Ripley Circuit Court. She is the 12-year-old sister of Bradyn Chadwell, 3, Batesville, who died Aug. 14, 2015. His father’s girlfriend, Jennifer Schooler, Batesville, is on trial for murder.

Before the girl wearing a sparkly headband came into the courtroom, defense attorney John Watson, Sunman, and Schooler traded places so she was farther from the witness stand. Meanwhile, the girl’s Court-Appointed Special Advocate moved closer to the stand to give the young witness support.

Through questioning, the prosecutor learned Cheyenne has lived with a second set of foster parents for one year and has a foster sister.

Hertel asked, “Do you remember when you lived in Batesville with your dad … and Jennifer Schooler?” She did.
