Bond denied in child wounding case



Bond was denied Thursday for a Pulaski man accused of causing “multiple” fractures to the skull of his girlfriend’s 5-month-old baby.

Pulaski County Circuit Court Judge Marcus Long Jr. ordered that Steven Edward Kaine Akers continue to be held without bond because “I believe you are a danger to the community.” Akers, 22, has been held at New River Valley Regional Jail since his Feb. 28 arrest on charges of malicious wounding and felony child abuse.

Long pointed out the incidents that led to the allegations of abuse “apparently happened over a period of time.”

    Don’t worry David. In jail he’ll have plenty of opportunity to defend himself against men his own size and bigger. Inmates don’t much care for child molesters or abusers.
