Couple charged after infants found in back seat
A Tennessee couple was arrested early Wednesday morning after police discovered their twin six-month-old boys in the back seat of their vehicle wearing cold, urine-soaked clothing. Versailles police said they were called by a Speedway clerk around 3 a.m. who told them a car with its hood up had been parked next to a gas pump for about two hours. When they arrived, they spoke to Christopher Smith, 34, and Crystal Cramer, 33, who said they were having car problems. Eventually one of the adults mentioned the infants, whom police hadn’t seen because the back seat was filled with bags of clothes. “They said they would stop about every 50 miles to check on the kids …” Versailles Police Lt. Michael Fortney said. “(Officers) found the one, cold to the touch. They pulled both kids out … of the car, took them in the store, started getting them warmed up and called for an ambulance to come check them out.” Smith and Cramer were arrested and charged with first-degree wanton endangerment and first-degree criminal abuse of a child (12 or under). At the Woodford County Detention Center, Cramer was charged with possession of methamphetamine and promoting contraband. The twins were examined and placed in foster care. Smith and Cramer will be arraigned Monday in Woodford District Court.
