Caretaker brutually beats 10 year-old over Cheetos

Posted on November 7th, 2012 No Comments

The 23 year-old caretaker of a ten year-old girl has been charged with injury to a child after the young girl told investigators she was beaten with an extension cord, had her hair pulled, and head hit against the floor. The Houston Chronicle says the violence started when the girl returned from a neighbor’s house with a bag of Cheetos.

She recalls that when her caretaker, who had been her guardian since 2006 when her mother was deported to Honduras, saw her eating the snack, the woman became very angry and started hitting her. The girl then says she passed out after the woman banged her head on the floor.

The ten year-old came forward after a school district police officer noticed bruises on her legs and took her to Child Protective Services. Her caretaker later admitted to kicking the girl while she lay on the floor, but denies any wrongdoing.
