3 more Amyx family members indicted for not protecting child from sexual abuse

ROCKWALL – Three more Amyx family members have been indicted for child endangerment and not protecting a child under 15 from continuous sexual abuse by Kenneth Amyx, the same Fate resident who was arrested and charged Sunday with murdering Plano resident Jennifer Streit-Spears.

Kenneth Amyx, 45, was indicted in February by a Rockwall grand jury for “two or more counts” of sexual abuse against a child under 14. A warrant was then issued for his arrest. Plano police said he told them Sunday that he knew he was a “wanted man.”

His wife or girlfriend, Kristi Green Amyx, 45, of Fate; plus Charles Harde Amyx, 70, and, his wife, Sherry Reynolds Amyx, 69, of Garland were indicted March 16 for “intentionally, knowingly, recklessly or with criminal negligence engage in conduct” that placed a child under 15 “in imminent danger of of death, bodily injury, or physical or mental impairment,” according to the indictment.

The indictment also states that the Amyx family members did not “voluntarily deliver the child to a designated emergency infant care provider under Section 262.302 of the Family Code.”

Authorities say they cannot state the exact relationship of Kristi, Charles and Sherry Amyx to Kenneth Amyx. According to the Collin County judicial records, Kristi is listed as his girlfriend. His father/stepfather is listed as Rick Amyx and his brother/stepbrother is Rodney Amyx.

A warrant was issued March 21 for Kristi Amyx. She was then arrested and bond set March 24 at $15,000. She posted bond and was released from jail March 30. Her next hearing is set June 14 at 9 am.

Warrants for Charles and Sherry Amyx were also issued March 21. Bond was set for $15,000 for both persons and posted for both April 5. Their next hearings are set for June 28 at 1 pm.
