A Florida woman has been charged with cruelty towards a child after authorities claim she slapped and stomped on an 8-year-old boy for putting dirty laundry in the dryer.
The Department of Children and Families notified the Monroe County Sheriffâ€™s Office on April 21st.
27-year-old Marina Vega, according to the boy, hit him in the face and on the side. He said he was laying on the floor because it hurt, when she stomped his stomach.
He told investigators that she was wearing flip flops on her feet, thankful they weren’t “normal shoes”.
After the investigation, a warrant was issued for Ms. Vegaâ€™s arrest.
She was booked into jail on child cruelty charges on Wednesday and is being held without bond.
