Woman charged in neglect case involving baby
Pasco sheriff's deputies made another arrest Tuesday in a child neglect case they began investigating last month. Deputies say Andrea Vaughan, 23, failed to provide a 5-month-old child with the food, clothing, medical services and shelter "that a prudent person would consider essential for the well-being of the child," according to a report. Her live-in boyfriend, Iran Munn, 34, has been in jail since Jan. 25 on similar charges. According to the arrest report, the child had not seen a health care provider since birth. Deputies said the baby had also been left with a roommate for more than 20 hours without diapers or food. The couple's relation, if any, to the child was not released. The case is still under investigation.

Killer gets 16 years in pair of attacks
Jason Brian Waterhouse was sentenced Tuesday to 16 years in prison for beating one man and killing another. Waterhouse, 18, of 11550 Altoona Ave., New Port Richey, shot 22-year-old Joshua Coggins last April, authorities say, outside a mobile home in the Griffin Park neighborhood. Coggins was shot twice in the back and died after surgery, reports said. Also, back in June 2007, after a near wreck on State Road 54, Waterhouse got out of his car at a red light near Gunn Highway in Odessa and reached into the car of 59-year-old Richard Kleszcynski and punched him in the face. Waterhouse pleaded guilty in December to manslaughter and aggravated battery for those crimes. He has been arrested, as a juvenile and as an adult, for a long list of offenses, including drugs, guns, violence and theft.
