A Fort Gibson woman was charged Thursday with child abuse, and the man with whom she lived was charged with molestation.
Jennifer Meshelle Blunt, who is also known as Jennifer Edwards, was charged in Muskogee County District Court with two counts of child abuse. Her bond was set at $25,000. Jesse Clyde Wilson Sr., was charged with two counts of lewd molestation and two counts of lewd or indecent acts to a child under 16. His bond was set at $150,000.
The pair was arrested Monday night after police said they found a teenager hiding in a closet with a knife who had called police to say a 9-year-old was being abused.
Blunt, 28, and Wilson, 64, will be back in court Feb. 10 for a date to be set for a preliminary hearing.
