MUNCIE — With her father and stepmother already facing long prison terms, authorities aren’t letting up in their investigation of the events that led to the March 2010 death of Lauren McConniel.

On Tuesday, a third adult who lived in the South Ebright Street house where 5-year-old Lauren spent her final months was arrested on charges stemming from her mistreatment and death.

Robert E. Lee, 44 — the stepfather of Brittany McConniel, Lauren’s stepmother — is charged with aiding, inducing or causing neglect of a dependent, a Class A felony carrying a standard 30-year prison term; three counts of battery, a Class D felony with a standard 18-month sentence, and failure to immediately report child abuse, a misdemeanor.

Lee, listed on court records at addresses in both Muncie and Farmland, was arrested late Tuesday afternoon, and was being held without bond in the Delaware County jail.

Details of the allegations against Lee were not available Tuesday night, although more information was expected today after related court documents are unsealed.

Lee, his wife and their adult daughter also lived with the McConniels.

Lauren died in Riley Hospital for Children on March 9, 2010, apparently after her as-yet-unexplained ingestion of a lethal amount of table salt, which caused seizures and brain injuries her malnourished body could not recover from.

Just after 5 a.m. May 14, a woman who has a child with McConnell said he jumped out from behind the stairwell as she was returning to her apartment and forced her into the apartment, according to a Rock Hill Police report. He is accused of hitting her repeatedly before sitting on her bed and pouring tea all over her.

She fought back, scratching him, and when he went to wipe himself off she ran out of the apartment and banged on other apartment doors.McConnell followed her and hit her again until he heard an apartment door open. He fled in a gray vehicle, according to the report.

When officers arrived, the woman had some kind of liquid poured over her, the report states. She had a scratch on her face, a bruise on her arm and swollen lips.

The woman told officers that McConnell has a previous criminal domestic violence charge they had gone to court about, but she told the judge it was a lie because McConnell had threatened her, according to the report.

The chase with sheriff’s deputies began the following day about 2 p.m. on Anderson Road in Rock Hill when they attempted to pull him over. McConnell sped off, and deputies had to use spike strips to puncture his car’s tires. His car was found in a ditch on Hall Spencer Road, but McConnell ran off.

McConnell is being held at the Moss Justice Center in York on an $84,402.50 bond.
