Law enforcement in Polk County has been busy in recent days. PolkCountyToday.com is reporting that one man has been charged with killing a newborn, while another man has been charged in a child pornography case.

CAPITAL MURDER

Reports say 22-year-old Thomas Allen Janczak, of Livingston, is accused of beating to death his 1-month old child and he is currently jailed on a Capital Murder charge with bond set at $1 million.

The death occurred in November of 2020, but the arrest was delayed until now as detectives carried out a lengthy investigation.

POSSESSION OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY

Meanwhile, 42-year-old Jim Olin McLain, of Livingston, is charged with several counts of Possession of Child Pornography.

Investigators say it all began when numerous child pornography photos and videos were found on electronic equipment owned by McLain, which resulted in arrest warrants being issued.

It’s unknown if McLain is still jailed and his bond amount was not listed.
