WFPD: Woman arrested for allegedly beating 4-year-old daughter with a belt

Local News

A Wichita Falls mother is charged with beating her four-year-old daughter with a belt to an extent the little girl had new and old bruises all over her body.

Skye Johnson, 26, is charged with injury to a child and has posted her $7,500 bond.

Police officers were called to Fain Elementary school about a child with bruises on her arms. CPS also responded to the school.

There, they asked the girl how she got the bruises and she told them her mother spanked her with a belt because she didn’t clean up her room, and said she was beaten other times in the past.

Police also interviewed the girl’s 6-year-old sister and 7-year-old brother who confirmed the girl was beaten for not cleaning up and said it had happened several times.

They said the seven-year-old told them he felt safe at school but did not like it when he went home.

Police interviewed Johnson and said she told them the 4-year-old was her laziest child and instead of cleaning up, she was hiding under her bed.

She said she dragged the child out and the reason she had bruises all over her body was that the child got in a fetal position and kept trying to crawl under the bed while she tried to spank her.

The medical records show the girl had new and old bruises to her chest, abdomen, thighs and arms.
