Charges have now been filed against a Cleveland mother for tying her 9-year-old daughter to a chair naked and beating her.
A charge of kidnapping has been filed against Domonique Jones. A kidnapping charge can be filed if someone restrains a person against their will. Other charges for the actual abuse are likely to come later from a Grand Jury.
Court records show Jones tied her daughter to the chair with belts, and then hit her with a belt. The little girl had bruises all over her body.
Police said the abuse was discovered by the child's father when he went to Jones' East 123rd Street home.
Police have also arrested Jones' boyfriend on a warrant in connection with case.
The little girl, and her two siblings, are now in the care of relatives.
