KILLEEN (July 16, 2013)—Trevis Akeem Miller, 29, of Killeen, was free on bond Tuesday after he was charged over the weekend in an incident in which a 3-year-old boy in his care was beaten with a belt.

He was charged with injury to a child.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, the boy and some other children were left with a man last Thursday at a home in the 1300 block of Quail Circle in Killeen while their mothers went shopping.

The injured child's mother dropped the other woman off at the Quail Circle address and a short time later that woman called the child's mother to come pick the boy up.

When the mother arrived she found the boy and discovered his injuries.

She him to a Killeen fire station where firefighters called police.

According to the affidavit a police investigator noted injuries to the boy's arms, stomach, shoulders, back, legs and bottom.
