A north-central Iowa woman is facing charges after a child she was caring for was found unconscious last week
A news release from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office shows Jessica Mae Torres is charged with felony child endangerment with serious injury and felony willful injury. Torres is the aunt of the child and was her care provider at a home in Hampton at the time the five-year-old girl was hospitalized on May 17.
The girl was later flown to a hospital in Des Moines, but there’s no word on the child’s current condition. Investigators are not releasing any information about the girl’s injuries or what led them to arrest Torres.
