Rand man convicted in baby's death among 70 indicted by Kanawha grand jury

A Kanawha grand jury on Sept. 13 handed up indictments against 70 people, Kanawha Prosecuting Attorney Chuck Miller said in a news release Tuesday.

Among those indicted last week was William Ellis Bowen IV, who was convicted of murder of a child by refusal and failure to supply necessities and death of a child by child abuse shortly on Tuesday.

Bowen’s indictment was a superseding indictment, meaning it was the second indictment against him.

He was arraigned before Chief Kanawha Circuit Judge Joanna Tabit Monday morning, before his trial began.

Bowen was convicted of causing a fatal injury to 8-month-old Lillyann Hudson on June 23, 2018, and failing to get medical care for the baby, who was his girlfriend’s daughter.

No sentencing hearing had been scheduled for Bowen Tuesday.

A person who has been indicted is innocent until proven guilty. An indictment does not mean a person committed a crime. An indictment indicates that grand jurors have decided enough evidence exists to warrant a criminal trial.

Below are the remaining 69 indictments.
