CHARLESTON - Two Kanawha County sisters are facing charges after police say they staged pictures of a baby being attacked.  The mother, 23-year-old Meleny Kranwinkle, and the aunt, 22-year-old Cecile Kranwinkle, are charged with felony child neglect and misdemeanor obscene and harassing telephone calls. Charleston police say they sent pictures to the baby's father of someone holding a knife to infant's throat, with a substance that resembled blood on the child's clothing.  Officers found the four-month-old unharmed at the two women's apartment, and they say they also found the picture on Cecile's cell phone.
