Child accuser says she was bound and beaten, her alleged abuser indicted

ANGELINA CO, TX (KTRE) - Four counts of Injury to a Child and three counts of Unlawful Restraint have been levied against Kathy Taylor.

Taylor was arrested earlier this month and on Friday an Angelina County grand jury indicted her.

In an interview at Angelina Alliance for Children, the alleged victim claimed she and two others were abused by Taylor for years.

One of those two, now an adult, confirmed the accuser's story.  In a written affidavit, the witnesses said Taylor used tape to bind a girl's hands, feet and mouth.  Then, Taylor allegedly made the child lay down while beating her with an extension cord.

Taylor's bond is $50,000.
