Public Safety Reports

 

A couple accused of harming their seven-year-old daughter was taken into custody by Troup County Sheriff’s deputies on Thursday.

 

Sean Edward Magdaleno and Janie Lynn Daniel were arrested and both charged with one count of cruelty to children in the second degree, said TCSO officials.

 

The arrests follow an ongoing investigation of the couple after their young daughter tested positive for methamphetamine in October, officials said.

 

The incident allegedly occurred inside the family’s home in the first block of Pine Hill Road.

 

Magdaleno and Daniel also tested positive for the illegal drug as well, according to TCSO investigators.

 

The couple remains in the Troup County Jail.
