HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) – A western Kentucky mother facing charges in connection with injuries her two sons received made an initial court appearance on Monday.

Hannah Harrell faces two counts of criminal abuse.

A judge set her bond at $250,000 and ordered her back in court August 30.

Police arrested Harrell on Friday, shortly after Caleb Cobb made a court appearance in connection with the same case.

Investigators said Harrell’s one-year-old son was beaten and received a broken jaw, and her two-year-old son had bleeding on the brain.

Both boys have since been released from the hospital.
