More on the Virginia Brothers - Parents Charged with Felony Child Endangerment

Local news reports further to our earlier post A 10-year-old Amelia County boy has been charged with reckless handing of a firearm in an incident in which police said his 11-year-old brother was accidentally shot in the face two weeks ago.
The child, whose name was withheld because of his age, is accused of handling a pistol that apparently was involved in the Oct. 9 shooting in the family’s home in the county’s Mannboro area. The boys’ parents, Patrick D. and Joanna E. Callaway, were charged last Tuesday with felony child endangerment in connection with the incident. Investigators said the Callaways had left their children alone during the time of the 6:23 a.m. shooting. The 11-year-old victim was reported to be in stable condition and continues to improve at VCU Medical Center. The Callaways and their 10 year-old son made their first appearances Monday in Amelia County Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court. I say they should leave the kid the hell alone and punish dad twice.
