SBS: Virginia and Arkansas: Calahan

L.C. was taken into DHS custody when she was born on February 16, 2010. DHS filed a petition for emergency custody on February 19, 2010, alleging that L.C. was dependent/neglected. Attached to its petition was an affidavit setting forth facts concerning a recent social-services case in Virginia involving two of L.C.'s siblings. The affidavit asserted that the appellants' eleven-month-old child, La.C., had died while in their custody as a result of shaking, and that Mrs. Calahan's two-year-old child, L.D., had sustained serious injuries requiring emergency surgery. The two-year-old child remained in foster care in Virginia when the appellants moved back to Arkansas. The trial court granted DHS's motion for emergency custody on February 19, 2010.
