Mother Accused Of Abusing 10-Month-Old, Burning Cigarettes On Baby’s Body
A Georgia woman is now behind bars after authorities say she abused her infant daughter.
20 Year Old Selena Rios is accused of abusing and abandoning her 10-month-old after she was found with multiple bruises, cigarette burns and scars on her body.
Isabella Rios says her 20-year-old sister, Selena Rios, never abandoned her baby, and shouldn’t have been arrested and brought to court for abusing her.
Isabella Rios says police need to find out who really harmed her niece, Anahi. Police say they found the baby with multiple bruises on her small body.
“The victim had multiple healing cigarette burns, bruises to the face. Various scars on her body. Growth developmental delays and an intentionally removed toe nail,” Judge Beatrice Scott said.
Police arrested the baby’s mother on felony child cruelty charges.
Officers say a friend of Selena’s named Maria told them Selena dropped the baby off with her Saturday at her mobile home on Tara Boulevard and disappeared.
But Selena’s sister disputes that account.
Isabella Rios says her sister would never harm her child.
