Grand jury indicts two suspects in child sexual assault case

Local News

Two suspects in the alleged repeated sexual assaults of a 12-year-old girl are now indicted by the grand jury.

Shannon Wells is indicted on four counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child as is his co-defendant, Casey Chapman, 36.

Police officers said Wells is the boyfriend of Chapman and they both had sex with a young girl over the course of several months last year. 

They said the victim said to police she at first had only been having sex with Chapman, but then Wells found out about it and demanded sex too.

Chapman reportedly told officers the assaults by Wells took place several times between Halloween and Thanksgiving of last year and her sexual relationship with the girl began before that in March. 
Chapman was indicted previously on four counts of aggravated sexual assault.

She remains jailed on $850,000 in bonds.

Wells is no longer listed on the jail roster.
