SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Sioux Falls woman is accused of physically abusing a child at her in-home daycare.

Thirty-one-year-old Stephanie Houston appeared in court Wednesday afternoon on charges of abuse or cruelty to a minor. She’s being held on $5,000 bond.

Capt. Loren McManus says an investigation began June 22 after a mother brought her 1-year-old daughter to the hospital because of bruising and abrasions. The Argus Leader reports authorities say the doctor who examined the girl said the injuries were indicative of abuse.

McManus says four or five children were involved in the investigation, but the 1-year-old was the only child that showed signs of abuse.

It was not immediately clear of Houston has an attorney who could comment on her behalf.
