25-year-old Mystery Somnus is charged with aggravated felony child abuse and neglect after she left teeth marks and a bruise on her young daughter’s arm during an argument over going to bed. She initially claimed a dog bit her daughter, before admitting she did it.
Clarksville Police responded to a child abuse/neglect call on June 11th at Gate 3 of Ft. Campbell. A young female child was at the emergency room of Blanchfield Army Hospital, with “a bruise on her left arm with teeth marks around the outside in the shape of a human mouth”.
