Two people are facing charges following an investigation by Child Protective Services.

On Dec. 14, the Oxford Police Department arrested Brooke Anna Austin, 20 of Oxford, and Brodrick Alexander Rogers, 25, of Oxford after a worker with CPS notified an OPD investigator that the couple’s children showed signs of abuse.

A joint investigation ensued between CPS and OPD, resulting in the arrests.

Austin and Rogers were both charged with felony child abuse each given a $20,000 bond by a Lafayette County Justice Court judge.
