  • Dustin William Thomas Dye was arraigned Friday, June 20, on two charges of first degree assault, and his preliminary hearing was scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday, July 28.
    The case is being heard by Associate Circuit Judge John J. Jackson at the Marion County Courthouse in Hannibal.
    On Friday, Dye was arraigned via a video conference from the Marion County Jail, where he is being incarcerated with bond set at $250,000, cash only.
    Also on Monday, Dye’s attorney, Public Defender Jennifer Richardson, filed a hearing motion for bond reduction.
    On Tuesday, June 3, Hannibal Regional Hospital reported to the police and other agencies that a 7-week-old infant had been taken to the hospital with critical injuries. The infant was soon transferred by ambulance to St. Louis Children’s Hospital in St. Louis.
    Dye, 29, of 3112 Rendlen Ave. in Hannibal, was arrested on Saturday, June 7, by the Hannibal Police Department.
    On June 9 Marion County Prosecuting Attorney David Clayton filed the two first degree assault charges against Dye. The warrant states Dye allegedly caused serious physical injury to a 7-week-old infant known as “Baby Nora.”
    When the charges were filed, Clayton reported the charge of assault first degree carries a range of punishment of up to life in prison, so if convicted, Dye could face up to two consecutive life sentences.
