Charges filed against mom after kid ends up with broken leg

Charges have now been filed against a mother for what happened to her 3-year-old daughter.

Cleveland Child Abuse investigators have charged Tabitha Schaeffer with felony assault and child endangering.

On Tuesday, the child ended up at MetroHealth Medical Center with a broken leg. A police report shows the child claimed, "Mom hurt me today."

A witness told police, the mother had whooped the little girl, and she fell down the steps.

Schaeffer later denied she hit the girl.
