The indictment moves the case from Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court to Circuit Court.

Washington carried the bloodied girl back to her Brandon Road home in May, but blamed someone else for the attack, according to the children's mother. Sharain Spruill says Washington blamed someone else for what happened and told her it was a white man.
