GOSHEN TOWNSHIP, Ohio - A Nov. 7 call to Clermont County emergency dispatch resulted in two parents being indicted for child endangerment.
According to the Goshen Township police, Ashley Johnson and Philip Cash's 6-month-old infant was transported to Cincinnati Children's Hospital via University Air-Care after he stopped breathing.
"I was in the living room and I come in here. So I come in here to pick him up and he's not moving," Cash said during the 911 call. "He's breathing, but he takes these big, long breaths."
After a week-long investigation, officers allege that the child's injuries were the result of being shaken by Cash. Officers also say the child was dropped by Cash in October, which resulted in a fracture to the baby's arm. Police say that injury was not reported or and the child never received medical treatment for the injury.
Cash was indicted on six felonies, including two felonious assault charges and four counts of child endangerment. The infant's mother, Ashley Johnson, was indicted for one count of child endangerment.
Cash is being held at the Clermont County Jail on a $500,000 bond. Johnson as released on her own recognizance.
Both Cash and Johnson are scheduled to appear in court for a pretrial hearing on Nov. 21.
