Sasha J. Hunt, 22, Berne, was charged with attempted murder, a class A felony, and neglect of a dependent, a class C felony, after police say she tried to kill her 3-month-old son.
According to a probable cause affidavit, on Oct. 13 Hunt placed a sock in or over the mouth of her son and wound tape around his head to hold the sock in place. Hunt then allegedly wrapped her son in a blanket, placed him face down on a pillow inside a closet, closed the door, and walked away.
The former Dunbar Furniture Company building that has blighted the city landscape for several years may soon be gone, according to Berne City Attorney Jim Beitler.
Beitler told the city council Tuesday he recently met with representatives from Indianapolis and Fort Wayne firms regarding the property and feels the city will be ready to move into “phase two” of its plan to eliminate the eyesore.
Adams County Treasurer Tom Krueckeberg informed county commissioners of the pending sale of properties with delinquent taxes within the county at Tuesday’s weekly commission meeting.
