JonBenét Ramsey Murder Case: Grand Jury Voted to Indict Parents on Charges of Child Abuse Resulting in Death

According to court documents released Friday in Boulder, Colo., a grand jury voted in 1999 to indict the parents of murdered 6-year-old beauty pageant winner JonBenét Ramsey on charges of child abuse resulting in death and of being accessories to a crime.

The indictment alleges that between Christmas Day and Dec. 26, 1996, John and Patsy Ramsey "unlawfully, knowingly, recklessly and feloniously permit a child to be unreasonably placed in a situation which posed a threat of injury to the child's life or health," which resulted in her death.
