Grandmother Fights For Custody Of Grandchildren After One Killed

A Rowan County woman is fighting for custody of three grandchildren after their two-year-old brother died under their caretakers' watch.

Patricia Grubb lost her two-year-old grandson, Chevy, last week. The little boy lived in West Virginia with his other grandmother, Pearl Christian, and her fiance Byron Morrison. Chevy was killed when an electric stove he was climbing fell on top of him.

Christian and Morrison were arrested at Chevy's funeral in Greenup County for neglect charges.

Grubb, who has been fighting for custody of the kids., says she's more motivated than ever. "We're definitely going to fight as long as we have to to make sure the children never get back to their mother and that situation again," she said,

Both Christian and Morrison remain in the Greenup County Detention Center while West Virginia state police plan to extradite them as soon as possible.
