A former social worker in western Kentucky has been indicted on a charge of tampering with public records.
The Kentucky New Era reports a Christian County grand jury handed down the felony indictment on Friday against 41-year-old Donna Currey, who handled investigations into two high-profile abuse cases that ended when the children were killed. Currey quit her job in October after being accused by a state official of falsifying records.
Currey was involved in the cases of Amy Dye, whose adoptive older brother beat her to death, and 3-year-old Alayna Adair, who died from brain trauma. Adair's father, Charles Timothy Morris, has pleaded not guilty to murder. The Herald-Leader reported in November that Currey was assigned to investigate suspicious injuries involving Alayna Adair just three weeks before her death. An internal investigation found that Currey never saw Alayna Adair and lied about investigating the previous complaint.
Court records do not indicate whether Currey has hired an attorney
