CHARGES INCREASED AGAINST BABYSITTERS IN TODDLER'S DEATH

(Richmond, IN)--Two Richmond residents who operated a babysitting service from a home on North 19th are now facing the possibility of spending the rest of their lives behind bars after charges were upgraded following the death of a two-year-old boy last summer.  The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office has increased the charges against 61-year-old Pamela Barger and 52-year-old Todd Volker, who is a convicted sex offender, from Level 3 to Level 1 felonies as the result of a final autopsy report.  That report classifies the boy’s death as a homicide and indicates that he died from blunt force trauma.  Barger told investigators the boy tripped on his pajamas and hit his head.
