An investigation by the Christian County Sheriff’s Department Tuesday afternoon led to the arrest of a woman on a criminal child abuse charge.
Deputies were called to a Quisenberry Lane home after receiving a call that 27-year old Courtney Munro was abusing her child. Munro claimed she had spanked the child for misbehavior, but a witness said she had shaken the one-year old, struck him in the face and threw him down onto a bed.
An arrest citation says the child had bruising on the rear of his leg and on his shin. Two additional witnesses backed up the initial caller’s story and Munro was arrested for third-degree criminal abuse.
