PAW PAW, Mich. — A woman has been arrested in a case involving the child abuse and torture of a 6-year-old.

On Friday, detectives from the Michigan State Police Paw Paw Post obtained a warrant issued by the Van Buren County Prosecutor’s Office and arrested a 47-year-old woman from Bangor for felony child abuse and torture.

The investigation was prompted on Wednesday when MSP troopers responded to the Bronson Lakeview emergency room after medical personnel discovered injuries to a 6-year-old child. Troopers and detectives investigated the incident in conjunction with Michigan Child Protective Services and the child was removed from the residence.

MSP told FOX 17 NEWS that the injuries indicated that the child had been bound.

The suspect’s name will not be released until she is arraigned in court on Monday.

The maximum penalty for both of the charges is life in prison.

  • Hello

    I hope this woman rots in hell for what she did to this child. She does not deserve to call herself a mom when you can harm your very own child the way she did. Our prayers go out to this innocent child. We hope she is put into a loving home especially for the holidays.

    Prayers for the hospital staff and troopers who handled this, they can never forget these types of cases; also for the people who help this child going forward, that they are able to love him/her and show that poor baby that not everyone is like that. Prayers especially for this poor child, that he/she may be able to recover emotionally and physically and find the love that they deserve. But also prayers for the woman that while she is in prison (for what I hope is the rest of her life) she can understand what she did and can be redeemed, restored and set free from whatever demons caused her to do this to an innocent child.
