The much-publicized search for a child abuse suspect in Morgan County comes to an end late Saturday night after law enforcement converged on the Osage Ridge Apartments in Osage Beach.
Miller County Corporal Josh Wilson also says, after securing the location of Troy Wyche, the standoff came to an end without any further incident just before midnight.
The 25-year-old from Barnett, who was out on bond on a similar charge in Miller County, was charged in Morgan County on three felony counts of abuse or neglect of a child including serious physical injury. He’s being held on a $250-thousand bond in Morgan County and on no bond in Miller County after it was revoked by the court. Two other people, the mother of the child in Morgan County…Skyler Duhn… and the mother of Wyche…Rebecca Coerver who, allegedly, had knowledge of the abuse but did not report it…are also charged in connection to the abuse. KRMS News, on the scene when Wyche was taken into custody, will release more details as they become available from the Miller County Sheriff’s Department.
