The Stover couple charged in the beating death of three-year-old Blake Litton was in Morgan County court yesterday. 21-year-old Thomas “TJ” Presley waived his right to a preliminary hearing. 26-year-old Jamie Litton, the little boy’s mother chose to appear at her preliminary hearing yesterday afternoon at the Morgan County Justice Center in Versailles.
Both are charged with second-degree murder in the Feb. 16 death of Jamie Litton’s three-year-old son Blake. Jamie attended to see if she could get her sentence reduced to a lesser charge which Judge Kevin Schehr did not grant. He upheld Litton’s second-degree murder charge and two separate charges of endangering the welfare of a child. Both face arraignments on August 23 for second degree murder charges.
