Nefiteria Burrell (27) has a three year old daughter and a 6 year-old daughter with diabetes. Burrell was taken to jail on December 23, telling the arresting officer that her boyfriend, John Frank Evans (28), would be arriving shortly to look after her girls.
Police conducted a criminal history check on Evans, 28, making sure he did not have outstanding warrants or was listed in the sex offender registry. Evans showed up, and spoke by telephone to Burrell once.
When Burrell was released from jail on the 26th, she found her 3 year old unfed and the six year old in a diabetic coma. Evans was nowhere to be found. He evidently left the apartment later in the day on the 23rd.
As of last night, the six year old was in critical condition, and the police are looking for Evans.
