OXFORD, AR (KAIT) – Sheriff's deputies arrested a Region 8 couple after a 2-year-old boy they were caring for was found walking in the rain carrying an ax.

Mary Katherine Dehli, 32, and James Edward Filchack, 40, of Oxford are charged with second degree child endangerment.

Izard County Sheriff Tate Lawrence says the two were arrested after a neighbor called to report a small boy was "roaming the neighborhood carrying an ax."

The child was under the couple's supervision at the time he was spotted "wandering the area" in the rain, Lawrence said.

Dehli and Filchack appeared before District Judge David E. Miller who set a court date for the pair and they were released from the Izard County Detention Facility.
