Trial Date Set For New Paris Woman Involved With Toddler’s Death

An October trial date is set for the New Paris woman charged in connection with the death of a 19-month-old toddler. 58 year-old Jackie Rolston is charged with one count of battery on a child resulting in death, a Level 2 felony. According to court documents, Rolston was watching Kirk Coleman at her home last October when she called 911 and said the boy was choking on his food. However, an autopsy found Kirk had signs of blunt force trauma to his head. Rolston had a previous conviction for neglect of a dependent, but Kirk’s family were not aware of that.
