Two Muskogee women charged with child abuse, neglect

Two Muskogee women accused of beating a 5-year-old so severely that he suffered two strokes while in a hospital were arrested Tuesday on charges of child abuse and neglect.
After conducting forensic interviews, investigators determined that the boy had been locked in a room and bound with duct tape over his eyes. The boy told investigators that his mother, Stevens, and Stevens’ girlfriend, Jones, had beaten him with a belt, the affidavit states.
Police allege in the affidavit that Stevens hit the boy’s hand with a hammer and that Jones “kicked him so hard in the groin that it made him bleed.”
