Eunice couple arrested for cruelty to a juvenile

EUNICE, LA (KPLC) - A Eunice couple has been arrested and charged with second degree battery and cruelty to a juvenile.

26-year-old Jeremy Ryan Guidroz and 28-year-old Effie Jane LeBlue Lamb of Eunice were arrested and charged with cruelty to a juvenile and second degree battery.

Officials in Acadia Parish say that an investigation into an incident began in mid-September when a two-month-old was admitted to a hospital for treatment of head trauma.

Authorities say that while doctors were treating the two-month-old, detectives discovered several old fractures to the child's body that may have occurred within the prior month and prior to the head injury.

The infant spent several weeks in intensive care and was recently released into the custody of a family member.

Both Guidroz and Lamb are each being held on $25,000 bond at the Acadia Parish Jail.
