ST. GEORGE, S.C. (WCIV) – A man and woman living together in a St. George home were charged by Dorchester County deputies with child abuse.

According to deputies, 27-year-old Michael Hunt and 29-year-old Patricia Minus were charged with unlawful neglect of a child after medical personnel at Medical University Hospital called police.

On Sept. 22, deputies met with hospital officials who said injuries to a 15-month old child were considered non-accidental. The baby had head trauma stemming from a fall, officials said.

Agents from the Department of Social Services were also called.

After an investigation, Hunt and Minus were arrested. In court, both were issued a $50,000 personal recognizance bond.
