Evansville woman in jail on a child neglect charge

Posted: Updated:
EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Police say 24-year-old Cassondra Ball allowed a man to live with her and her 7-year-old son even though the man had been convicted of battering the child in the past.

Police say Ball knew there was a protective order against him but allowed the man, Jonathan Lloyd Harris, to live there anyway.

Officers say during that time Harris battered Ball's son on multiple occasions, choking him until he would pass out.

 Ball is charged with neglect of a child resulting in serious bodily injury.
