ORANGEBURG, S.C. (WCBD) – Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell announced that a mother and grandmother have been charged with neglect that led to the death of a handicapped teen.

Kynika Green, 32, was charged for the murder of her 16-year-old daughter.

Dasie Green, 64, who also resided at the home was charged with unlawful neglect of a child or helpless person.

Orangeburg County Sheriff’s investigators responded to a call about a deceased juvenile on April 30 at a residence near Beason Road.

Paramedics attempted to revive the teenager through CPR but eventually the effort was called off.

After a long investigation, it was determined that the teen died from medical neglect.

According to the warrant, investigators learned that care instructions and prescriptions went unheeded.

“This is a tragic, tragic situation no matter how you see it…” “There were other children in the home. They lost a sister. No winners here.
