29 year old Christo­pher Wick­er­ham, and 32 year old April Wick­er­ham, both now face felony counts of neglect of a depen­dent and bat­tery to a child after an inves­ti­ga­tion by The Steuben County Sheriff’s Office was launched last month fol­low­ing a report that a child in the couple’s care had been mis­treated.
