3 charged in child-abuse death in Fremont County

Three people have been jailed in Fremont County after an investigation into a child's death led detectives to a hashish oil laboratory in a Penrose home.

The Fremont County Sheriff's office said Logan Pedersen, 26, Claxton "Buck" Wilson, 36, and Rachel Wilson, 28, were held without bond at the Fremont County jail on suspicion of felony child abuse.

"A suspected hash oil lab was found inside the home where the deceased baby and other children lived," the sheriff's office said in a news release.

Hash oil is a product made by refining marijuana, often with toxic chemicals.

Deputies said the hash oil lab was turned up in the wake of the Sept. 2 death of a 2-month-old infant in a home on the 700 block of 4th Street in Penrose. The cause of the child's death hasn't been released.
