A Wichita Falls man is charged with injury to a child after a four year old suffered an internal injury.

Derek Lynn Mauldin, 29, is facing that charge after a child was taken to the emergency room in Wichita Falls.

The child's mother told police that Mauldin accidentally kicked the child in the stomach, but after surgery in Fort Worth, medical experts say the child's injury was far too severe to have come from a kick like that. Another child who saw what happened said Mauldin stomped on the child's stomach.
