ELLWOOD CITY, Pa. —
A Lawrence County couple is facing child endangerment charges after their 5-year-old daughter ran from their home and told police her father was trying to set her mother on fire.
According to police, Lindsey Cope and Thomas Kimmel had a fight last month inside their Ellwood City home.
Police said the couple’s 5-year-old daughter ran out of the house because she thought Kimmel was trying to kill Cope.
Surveillance video shows the girl running across the street to a 7-11 convenience store. Eventually, the couple’s four children appeared at the store pleading for help.
A customer tried to calm the kids down before allowing one of them to use her cellphone to call 911.
Cope and Kimmel are OK, but face child endangerment charges. They have a hearing later this month, and until then, can’t see their children.
