Two of three children age 3 and younger allegedly abused by a couple in Blanco, Texas showed signs of sexual assault, according to arrest warrant affidavits.
The children’s mother, Jamie Patronella, and her boyfriend, John Lawrence, were arrested Tuesday after calling 911 because Patronella’s 14-month-old daughter was unresponsive.The girl, Sunny Dakota Slade-Bort, died Thursday at University Hospital after her father requested to have her taken off life support.
The two other children, a 2-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy, also showed signs of abuse. Affidavits said the 2-year-old girl was also sexually assaulted. Affidavits also said the boy suffered a broken arm a few days before paramedics responded to the home.
