Charges dropped against man accused of abusing a 2-year-old


JONESBORO — A Jonesboro man accused of severely beating a child no longer faces charges.

According to KAIT, online court documents state charges against Chanc Kaidon Gray were nolle prossed on Feb. 6, meaning prosecutors chose to end legal proceedings.

The judge also lifted a no-contact order between Gray and the child following Monday’s decision.

Police arrested Gray in July of 2022 on suspicion of first-degree domestic battery after the two-year-old child was flown to a Memphis hospital with several fractures, including a fractured skull, and “deep internal bleeding,” the affidavit stated.
