Forsyth couple charged with murder in child's death

A Forsyth couple now faces murder charges in the death of a 5-year-old girl.

Amanda Hendrickson, 33, and Roderick Buckner, 34, were charged after Hendrickson's 5-year-old daughter, Heaven Woods, died last month.

Autopsy results from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation found Heaven died from blunt force trauma to the abdomen, but also revealed multiple other injuries, both new and old.

According to GBI Spokeswoman Sherry Lang, Amanda Hendrickson had a "history" with the state Division of Family and Children Services in Floyd County.

In addition to Felony Cruelty to Children, both Hendrickson and Buckner are now also charged with Felony Murder and Aggravated Battery.

Both were denied bond Monday and remain in the Monroe County Justice Center.
