Couple charged in child abuse case

CLARENDON COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

The Clarendon County Sheriff's Office have charged a woman and her live-in boyfriend after a 2-year-old girl arrived to a Manning hospital with a human bite mark on the left side of her body Tuesday night.

A nurse called the sheriff's office and said the victim was brought to the emergency room by EMS because the victim was experiencing a seizure, according to an incident report.

"The child was wearing a neck brace and the victim had several bruises on the left side of her head," the report states. "The victim also had bruises and scratch marks on her chest as well as a human bite mark on the left side of her torso."

The mother of the child told the deputy that she left the victim with her live-in boyfriend around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and the victim was in good health and acting normal, the report states.

Around 7:30 p.m. the mom was notified that the victim was having a seizure, the report states.

The ER doctor told deputies, the child sustained blunt force trauma to her head and was bleeding internally.

The child was flown to Palmetto Health Richland. Her condition is not known.  

The mother of the child is facing an accessory charge and the boyfriend is facing an attempted murder charge, the sheriff's office said Thursday.
