A two-month investigation leads to the arrest of a Quincy man and woman on assault and drug charges.

The Adams County Sheriff’s Office reports they received a tip from the Department of Children and Family Services in August on a report of child abuse and neglect.

A forensic interview of the chidren was completed with the help of specialists at the Quincy Child Advocacy Center.

The initial investigation revealed there were children involved who had suffered severe physical abuse with prolonged exposure to controlled substances. Some of the physical abuse is alleged to have caused permanent disfigurement to a child with a disability.

There was also evidence that methamphetamine was provided to the chidren.

One of the suspects in the case, 40 year old Stephanie Hendricks, was taken into custody in September.

The second suspect, 36 year old Zechariah Wigfall, Sr., was arrested Tuesday at a residence in the 400 block of College.

Both are in the Adams County Jail.

Hendricks has been charged with aggravated delivery of a controlled substance. Wigfall is charged with two counts of aggravated battery and aggravated domestic battery.
