A mother is in jail after she was arrested for abusing her own child.
Beaufort County deputies Tuesday arrested Jenny Jordan of Barnes Drive in Chocowinity on one count of felony child abuse inflicting serious bodily injury.
Deputies say on March 12th the child was flown to Pitt County Memorial Hospital with severe head trauma after it was injured at a home on Highway 17, south of Chocowinity.
Investigators would only say the child was under 5 year old.
