WICHITA FALLS - A Wichita Falls woman police say suggested in a phone text that Satan might have been responsible for injuries suffered by her 1-year old daughter is now going to jail for child endangerment and credit card abuse.

24-year-old Melissa Ann Martinez was sentenced to spend six months in state jail after her probation for child endangerment was revoked and for the separate credit card abuse charge.

Martinez received five years probation in 2014 for the endangerment plea bargain.

According to Martinez's arrest affidavit, she had put her daughter to bed and the next day said her daughter woke up with multiple bruises on various parts of her face.

The affidavit states Martinez denied anyone else being at her home and said the child did not have the injuries when she was put to bed.

A search warrant found an outgoing text message from Martinez where she questioned if the devil could have caused the child's injuries.
