A 20-year-old mother is accused of abusing her 1-year-old son because she was jealous and thought his dad loved him more than her.
Lessielee King is charged with felony injury to a child.
The baby’s father told investigators with the Humble police department that he grew suspicious after finding various bruises on his little boy’s body after leaving him alone with the baby’s mother.
When investigators asked King about the bite mark on the baby’s cheek, she allegedly said she never meant to leave any marks on her son.
She said the toddler’s face was just a little red after she “sucked” and “chewed” on his face.
Charges were filed and her bail was set at $5,000.
