Couple Charged for Baby's Death

A Geneva, Ohio, man is charged with criminal homicide for killing his girlfriend’s 6-month-old nephew in Clarion County.

22-year-old Chad Chadwick allegedly injured the little boy while he and 23-year-old Kelly Hemminger, also of Geneva, were babysitting him at a camp in Washington Township back in August. Zeke Hamilton was in critical condition at Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh until being moved to hospice shortly before his death on November 15.

The Medical Examiner’s Report says Zeke sustained “non-accidental blunt force trauma to the head.”

Hemminger is charged with conspiracy.

Chadwick and Hemminger are expected to be extradited within the week.
