The state's case against a Martinsburg-area couple accused of abuse and neglect in the Jan. 1 death of a 3-year-old boy is now bound for Berkeley County Circuit Court. The boy's father, James N. Mauldin, 20, waived his right to a preliminary hearing in Berkeley County Magistrate Court on charges of child neglect and child abuse resulting in death. Felony charges of child neglect and allowing child abuse with death that were filed against Mauldin's girlfriend, Jasmine K. Dawkins, 22, also were bound over to circuit court Wednesday after Magistrates Joan V. Bragg and Harry L. Snow found probable cause in separate preliminary hearings.

anthonyb@herald-mail.com BOONSBORO - Norm Madison, vice president of Blue Ridge Riding Club, has wanted to raise money for a good cause for some time. He has seen other organizations succeed in their attempts, and on July 24, he will have his opportunity. Madison will hold the Ride for Kids Fun Show to raise money for Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. Madison said it made more sense to donate to Children's than, for example, St. Jude's Children's Hospital, because of its location.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - The 11-year-old Hedgesville boy who received a double-lung transplant two months ago was in critical but stable condition at a Washington, D.C., hospital Tuesday.

On Tuesday afternoon, his condition was upgraded to critical but stable. The slight improvement came as no surprise to Larry Hoerner, a guidance counselor at Tuscarora Elementary School who has home-schooled Jordy since February.
