ROMNEY — The man suspected of killing his girlfriend’s child was formally indicted along with 24 other people Wednesday by a Hampshire County grand jury.
The indictments were delayed a day by the bitter cold that cancelled the court session on Tuesday.
Cody A. Orndorff of Green Spring was charged with a count of death of a child by custodian by child abuse and 5 more counts of child abuse resulting injury in the mid-October death of 18-month-old Leah Barnes.
The other indictments included drug-related charges against 4 people and a half dozen sex-related crimes, from 1st-degree sexual assault to distributing obscene material to a minor to failure to register as a sex offender.
