South Bend grandmother still facing charges

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The case against Dellia Castile will not be dismissed.

The judge denied Castile’s request on Thursday.

The South Bend grandmother is charged with three counts of neglect.

Police say that Castile knew that her son, Terry Sturgis, abused his kids and did nothing to help them.

Tramelle Sturgis, 10, died in November from what police say to be one of the worst cases of child abuse they have ever seen.

Castile has until February 8 to accept a plea deal.
