Two Accused of Child Abuse Due in Court

Two people facing abuse charges in Henderson County are set to begin their trial Monday.

Scott Overfield and Jailynna Lord each face one count of first degree criminal abuse.

Overfield is accused of sitting on his girlfriend's baby for up to a minute while the baby slept on the couch last summer.

The infant was found dead at the home.

Lord told police she performed CPR and the baby regained consciousness. Authorities say Lord is a certified nurse assistant and she allegedly did not seek any medical help for the baby.
