Woman Charged with Injury to a Child

Wichita Falls police arrested a 29-year-old woman after a child showed up at school with numerous injuries, including a bite wound.

Police say the alleged incident happened in early January.

Police said the child's injuries were extensive, ranging from swelling and bruising to the eyes, scratches on the neck and a handprint on the face.

The arrest affidavit stated that Kristen Marcy was taken into custody after forensic interviewers spoke with the young victim. The victim gave graphic detail about being choked by Marcy and getting poked in the eye with a pointed object, which might have been a skewer.

Marcy was charged with Injury to a Child, and has since bonded out of the Wichita County Jail.
