ABILENE, TX — Former CPS worker Gretchen Denny was found guilty in a jury trial for tampering with physical evidence.
According to court documents, she’s accused of knowingly altering or concealing a record or document.
Court documents state in August of 2012, a 22-month-old child was found dead after being malnourished. Documents say an investigation revealed the mother, Tiffany Klapheke, failed to feed the child or get her medical care.
In a jury trial, Denny was questioned about a photograph of the child that she didn’t share with law enforcement and medical staff.
The jury also saw text messages regarding the incident.
In 2014, Klapheke was sentenced to 30 years in prison.
