Rodney Bailey, age 35, of DeRidder, was transported from the Caldwell Parish Detention Center to the Vernon Parish Sheriff's Office jail this morning.

The Vernon Parish District Attorney’s Office brought formal charges, today, in connection with the investigation into the death of Willow Rain Molina-Renteria, formerly of Hornbeck. 

The Vernon Parish Grand Jury returned an indictment on Rodney D. Bailey, Jr., the child’s former babysitter, for the crimes of obstruction of justice and second degree cruelty to a juvenile.

If convicted on those charges, Bailey faces up to 80 years at hard labor and a fine of not more than one

hundred thousand dollars. Bailey is currently serving a prison sentence relating to charges from Beauregard Parish.
