WACO (February 17, 2014) Carol Ann Matthews, 21, of Waco, was held Monday in the McLennan County Jail after her arrest over the weekend on charges in connection with an injury to a child case.
Her bond was set at $5,000.
Her boyfriend, Brian Munger, 28, who also was arrested in connection with the incident, posted $2,500 bond Sunday and was released, a jail records clerk said Monday.
Matthews was arrested Sunday on a warrant stemming from an incident on Dec. 28, 2013 in which a 3-year-old girl was found to have serious bruising on her legs that "went beyond acceptable discipline," Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.
Officers were sent to an address in Waco after a referral from Child Protective Services that a young girl had been injured.
The child did not require medical attention, Swanton said.
