The boyfriend of a 16-year-old girl who gave birth to a baby that died in her North Toledo home was indicted yesterday by a Lucas County grand jury for unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.
John P. Hardy, 27, of 3733 North Erie St., Apt. 2B, was indicted on one count of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. He was charged last month and released from the Lucas County jail after posting $10,000 bond.
Monique R. Caulton, of 3302 Cherry St., gave birth to the premature baby March 24, then left him unattended on her bed. Her mother found the baby the next day.
Miss Caulton was charged with delinquency in connection with involuntary manslaughter. A Lucas County Juvenile Court magistrate placed her on community control until her next court date.
