Jamie Lockhart must have felt really threatened by his new baby. On Thursday, January 1, 2009 around 3:15 p.m., Waterloo Police Officers and Waterloo Fire Rescue Paramedics were sent to 1109 Randolph Street on the report of a one-week old infant who had sustained a severe laceration.
Officers determined that the infant, 8-day-old James Lockhart of 1109 Randolph Street, was the victim of an aggravated assault, having been stabbed in the abdomen with a knife. James was initially transported to Covenant Medical Center and then transferred to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City for treatment.
As a result of this investigation, 31-year-old Jamie Lockhart of 1109 Randolph Street has been arrested and charged with Attempt to Commit Murder. Jamie Lockhart is the father of James Lockhart. Three other children in the home including one of Jennifer Lockhart’s (the mother) from another relationship have all been removed from the home by the Iowa Department of Human Services.
Jamie Lockhart is presently being held in the Black Hawk County Jail on a two hundred thousand dollar bond.
James Lockhart remains hospitalized at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in stable condition
