Couple Charged With Child Abandonment Indicted

A Smith County couple has been indicted by a grand jury on charges of child abandonment.   Duane and Renee Lingard are accused of leaving their son, Jackson, 7, at a storage building on Highway 155 South in June.  

Smith County Constable Frank Creath said he found the boy while serving an eviction notice.  The couple denies abandoning their child, saying they left the boy in the care of a friend, while Duane took Renee to the hospital.
