A cross was burned in the yard of a Smith County man after what his family is referring to as a vicious hate crime occurred. Family members say that Craig Wilson was beaten with brass knuckles and shotMore >>
A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
The Lucas County Coroner's Office has ruled the death of 18-month-old Elaina Steinfurth a homicide.
The Coroner says Elaina suffered severe acute fractures to the joint areas of the arms and legs. The injuries are consistent with non-accidental trauma, according to the report.
The coroner says because of the absence of soft tissue and organs, no assessment of injury to those body parts could be made.
Elaina's father Terry Steinfurth Jr. reported her missing on June 2, 2013 when he says he came to pick her up from her mother and she was nowhere to be found.
Elaina's mother, Angela Steinfurth, and her ex-boyfriend Steven King were later arrested and charged with obstruction of justice in the case.
King and Steinfurth remain in the Lucas County Jail, but neither has been charged with the homicide.
Family members say they hope someone will be charged for the child's death.
"There's nothing I can do to bring her back. And like I told everybody when we were over at them vigils. They sat there and sat there and that baby wasn't coming walking back down that street to say here I am," said Richard Schiewe, Angela's father.
