NEW CUMBERLAND - A Hancock County grand jury Wednesday returned indictments, including four men charged with sex crimes against children.

The accused individuals are scheduled to appear to be arraigned before Circuit Judge Martin Gaughan on Sept. 27.

Also on that day, Gaughan is expected to set trial dates for Kristopher Burchett and Amanda Goodman, two Chester parents accused of neglect causing the death of their 4-month-old son, Brandon Burchett, in February. Both cases were continued earlier this month to allow the defendants to undergo psychiatric evaluations.

On Sept. 2, the child's grandfather, Kenneth Burchett, pleaded guilty to child neglect causing death. He was sentenced to three years of probation and is on house arrest, where he will remain until early November.
