FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a Fairmont baby sitter after they say her dog attacked a 2-year-old girl.

The Times West Virginian (https://bit.ly/29LHTvf ) reports that deputies arrested 34-year-old Opal L. Caston Wednesday with one felony count of child neglect creating risk of injury.

Marion County Sheriff’s Department Cpl. Russell Garrett wrote in a criminal complaint that Caston’s pit bull attacked the child in June while she was in Caston’s care.

The complaint states that the child had severe wounds to the inner and outer lip and wounds to her head. The child also had to receive stitches for a puncture wound to the neck.

Caston posted a $10,000 bond Wednesday. It’s unclear if she has an attorney.
