A stepmother charged with first-degree murder in connection with the disappearance of 11-year-old Gannon Stauch is facing new accusations.
Letecia Stauch, 36, was arrested in the Myrtle Beach area earlier this week.
Stauch said she last saw Gannon on Jan. 27 between 3:15 p.m. and 4 p.m. when he was going to a friend’s home in their El Paso County, Colorado, neighborhood.
While being taken back to Colorado, Stauch allegedly slipped out of her handcuffs and assaulted a deputy, KKTV reports.
The deputy was taken to the hospital with injuries.
Stauch is now in custody in El Paso County.
