Woman arrested for “tossing” child


Bond has been set at $100,000 for a woman Killeen police arrested in a child injury case.

Melissa Batres, age 22,  was booked into the Bell County Jail Saturday after police completed their investigation and obtained an arrest warrant.

Killeen Police Department spokesperson Ofelia Miramontez said the investigation began January 29 when personnel at McLane Chilren’s Hospital in Temple called to report a three year old had been brought in with a leg injury.

Miramontez said in the course of their investigation, police determined that a relative had gotten frustrated with the child and had tossed her, with the child hitting the floor of a home in the 3000 block of Jasmine Lane.
