Prestonsburg Couple Indicted

  • {Prestonsburg, Kentucky}...A Floyd County grand jury returned murder indictments Tuesday afternoon against Jason and Gladys Dickerson. Two year old Watson Adkins, the couple's nephew, died in September after police found him unresponsive at their home in Prestonsburg. The boy's mother, Rhoda Adkins, says Watson and her two other children had been living with her sister Gladys and her husband since March, and her sister was awarded custody in June. Kentucky State Police say Dickerson and his wife were arrested in Elliott County. State records show allegations that the couple abused the toddler.
