A man and woman from Collinsville have been charged with harassment after authorities say they threatened a 12-year-old boy over Facebook. 40-year-old Ralph Grant, and 39 year old Stacie Hamilton, both of Collinsville, are charged after they allegedly made threatening remarks to the boy, including using a racial slur.
Madison County authorities say the daughter of Hamilton was communicating with the boy over Facebook when the two got into an argument. At that point, authorities say Hamilton then contacted the boy through her own Facebook account using an audio feature, and began threatening the boy and using racial slurs. Grant could also allegedly be heard on the recording using similar language.
