Mother arrested in connection to death of Texarkana child

The child died after being taken to a Texarkana hospital with serious injuries.

TEXARKANA, Texas — The Texarkana Texas Police Department has arrested two more people in connection to the death of a 10-month-old child.

According to police, investigators learned that the child had many other injuries that were in varying stages of healing, which indicated a long history of physical abuse.

The child was originally brought in by Joshua Lowe who was arrested for capital murder after the child died at a Texarkana hospital.

The child’s mother, Christy Wedgeworth, had known about the abuse of both of her children, the 10-month-old boy and a 4-year-old girl, that resulted in serious injuries and failed to stop it or protect them, according to police.
