A mother is facing felony child abuse charges after a toddler was severely injured in Beaufort County nearly a year ago.
Deputies say last June 20th they got a report of child abuse at a home on River Road in Washington. The 22-month-old child was taken to Pitt County Memorial Hospital by EastCare after deputies say he or she received severe head trauma.
Samantha Cutler was arrested Tuesday after the Beaufort County Grand Jury indicted her last month. The 22-year-old woman's bond was set at $5,000.
