MONROE, La. (AP) - Police say a 39-year-old Monroe woman has been arrested on charges of cruelty to a juvenile.

The News-Star reports (https://tnsne.ws/P2LAxc ) police arrested LaToria Winder on Monday after a complaint was filed Thursday regarding extensive marks and bruising on a 12-year-old girl.

Police say the marks, which were on the child’s buttocks and body, were in various stages of healing.

Investigators found that the abuse happened after the victim reportedly had stolen items at school.

The girl’s mother died in 2013, and she has been in Winder’s custody since then.

It was unclear whether Winder has an attorney.
