Child Abuse

WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - A central Wisconsin child care provider is due in court a week from Thursday, after she allegedly cut and bruised a baby while spanking her.

Carla Blood of Birnamwood is charged in Marathon County with felony child abuse.

According to prosecutors, a grandfather of the eleven-month-old victim was told that the girl was out of control, and the 45-year-old Blood spanked her because she, "needed discipline."

The grandfather took the girl to a hospital in Antigo. Police said a doctor found that the injuries came from a foreign object which struck the baby.
