Third person indicted in child's drowning death

Another family member has been indicted in connection with the July drowning death of a child.
According to District Attorney Bill Torrey, John Ethan Furnace, 21, was indicted for second-degree manslaughter by the Milam County grand jury last week.
The younger Furnace and  his father, John Earl Furnace, Jr., 48, were caring for three children of Victoria Furnace, when 11 month-old Benjamin Castro drowned in a bathtub at their Rockdale home on July 19.
The older Furnace, grandfather of the children, was indicted Sept. 17 on charges of second-degree manslaughter and state jail felony abandon/endanger a child. The mother, Victoria Katelyn Furnace, 24, was indicted on state jail felony abandon/endanger a child.
Investigators said the grandfather was left in charge of the children when Victoria Furnace and her husband Raul Castro, both residents of Galveston, left them with him at a residence on CR 322 after a visit.
Arrest warrants were issued after Milam County Sheriff’s Department investigators found discrepancies in details given by the family members.
