Parents plead guilty in death of toddler

Timothy and Krystle Hoskins have each pleaded guilty in the death of Krystle Hoskins’ 2-year-old son Terry Wells.

Timothy Hoskins submitted a written plea of guilty of murder on Wednesday, Sept. 22. Hoskins was indicted on charges of murder, tampering with evidence, and five counts of endangering children. Clermont County Prosecutor Don White said his office was glad to have Hoskins accept the plea deal.

“It’s what we wanted from the beginning,” White said. “Even though we had strong evidence for the abuse you never know how things will turn out with a jury.”
