Two Ontonagon residents arrested on child abuse charges

Two Ontonagon residents are facing child abuse charges following a Department of Human Services investigation.

The Ontonagon County Sheriff’s Department said a 43-year-old woman and a 40-year-old man are charged with two counts of fourth degree child abuse.

Police said the charges stem from an investigation concerning the living conditions of the suspects’ residence, where children also live.

The two suspects are lodged in the Ontonagon County Jail.  The woman is scheduled for arraignment in district court May 13, but there is no court date set for the man.
