Jason Williams and Kayla Brewer

A Jefferson City couple is indicted on drug and weapons charges following an investigation into the death of the couple’s infant daughter. 

Jason Williams, 29, and Kayla Brewer, 19, were indicted by a grand jury on Friday on charges of delivery of a controlled substance, receiving stolen property, and endangering the welfare of a child.

While serving a search warrant at the couple’s home, deputies found a stolen AR-15 rifle, more than a pound of processed marijuana, and more than $30,000 in cash.

The couple’s two-month old child died on September 30 at their home on Pitchfork Alley, near Binder Lake.
