A passenger in the pickup truck that slammed into another vehicle and caused the death of a Chillicothe woman on Nov. 25, 2017, was charged last week with endangering the welfare of a child. The charge, a class B felony, was filed by Livingston County Prosecuting Attorney Adam Warren against Jeremy J. Osburn, 22, of Chillicothe. The complaint states that Osburn acted in a manner that created a substantial risk to the life, body and health of a child by providing air duster to Shawn Yuille for inhaling, while Shawn Yuille was operating a motor vehicle in which the child was a passenger. This offense resulted in serious physical injury to the child, Yuille’s 5-year-old daughter. The child was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, and received moderate injuries, including a laceration to her forehead, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Yuille, 23, of Trenton, is charged with 2nd degree murder and endangering the welfare of a child. He was listed as the driver of the pickup truck that struck a car driven by Danette Rardon, 39, of Chillicothe. Rardon died at the scene of the accident, in the 800 block of Washington Street. Yuille appeared in Livingston County Associate Circuit Court on Wednesday. The court continued the matter until 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 22, for a preliminary hearing. Yuille was remanded to the custody of the Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail. His bond is $200,000 cash only. Osburn is being held on a $100,000 cash only bond.
