Dad charged with urder in death of 3-year-old daughter (Bedford, Iowa)

We've posted on this case before. I still cannot find any clarification of the father's custodial status. The little girl's mother is mentioned no where--classic mother erasure. However, given that two weeks elapsed between her injuries and the time these two pieces of sh** contacted authorities, I'm thinking that dad CHARLES HALL was custodial.

Iowa father charged with murder in 3-year-old's death

BEDFORD, Iowa —A man arrested in May in connection with the death of his 3-year-old daughter in southwest Iowa has been charged with first-degree murder.

The Taylor County Attorney's Office announced Thursday that the charge was added against 25-year-old Charles Hall on July 2. A message left to his attorney was not immediately returned Thursday night.

Hall and his girlfriend, 25-year-old April Clair, were both arrested in late May on charges of child endangerment in connection with the death of Janyiah King.

Authorities responded to a 911 call at a residence in Bedford on May 22. Janyiah was found unresponsive and later pronounced dead. A full autopsy is pending but her death has been ruled a homicide.

Clair's attorney, Jane Orlanes, says she had no comment on behalf of her client.
