Update: Telford couple charged in "severe" child abuse case

A boyfriend and girlfriend have been charged in connection with the “severe” abuse of a 2-year-old boy, according to Washington County court documents.
Andrew Lorenze Allen, 28, and Amanda Percell, 22, both of 533 Browning Road, Telford, were charged with aggravated child abuse and child neglect or endangerment.
According to court documents the child was taken by ambulance to Johnson City Medical Center Wednesday from the Browning Road home for what was described as “severe head injuries.”
The child also had “multiple bruising and marks about his body,” according to court documents.
These injuries were consistent with those found in severe child abuse cases, according to the documents.
Allen and Percell were being held on $100,000 bonds each in the Washington County Detention Center.
Allen appeared in court this afternoon and was scheduled for a preliminary hearing Thursday.
He was appointed a public defender. That decision could be revisited if Allen posts bond.
Percell was also scheduled to appear in court today.
