Couple Arraigned

There was no hiding for Amber McEntire and Darrel Yates III. Their run from the law authorities for the death of 22 month old Harold Harris is over. Friday morning the couple was brought before Justice of the Peace Dorothy Tigner Thompson. She arraigned them for injury to a child. The boy's mother showed no emotion. Her husband occasionally would lower his head. No bond was set. That will be done when each one appears before a district judge. But first, the case will be taken before a grand jury.  They each asked for a court appointed attorney.

The two had been on the run for about six weeks. They fled shortly before authorities found the baby dead at the couple's home. They were arrested Wednesday at the Brownsville border and transported back to East Texas Thursday night.
