Greenbrier County Woman Arrested On Child Abuse Charge

Posted: Updated:

A Greenbrier County woman is behind bars Tuesday night on a felony child abuse charge.

Rainelle Police arrested 27-year-old Jennifer Gill, charging her with child neglect because of risk of physical harm.

Rainelle Chief of Police J.P. Stevens said the arrest followed a number of calls from neighbors complaining that Gill was leaving her 3-year-old child at home while dropping her 6-year-old child off at the bus stop. Stevens said he went to the bus stop Tuesday morning and asked Gill where her 3-year-old was. After following Gill back to her home Stevens discovered the 3-year-old alone sitting on a bed.

Child Protective Services took custody of the two children.

Gill is in the Southern Regional Jail on a $5,000 bond.
