LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - An Angelina County grand jury has indicted a Lufkin woman on a charge that she tied up her three-year-old stepson in a closet, used a belt to beat him and force fed him.

Angelina County deputies arrested Juana Urbina Salinas, 24, in July on the charge.

According to an arrest affidavit, Salinas tied up the boy by restraining his arms with two dresses on a pole on July 8. He was tied up for a "long time," according to a witness. The affidavit alleges the boy may have been tied up for around eight to ten hours.

He was tied up until his father came to the house in the 700 block of Kirkland Road. The boy was transported to a Lufkin hospital, where he was treated for bruises to his back, groin, face legs and arms.

The 44 indictments issued Friday include:

* Crystal Tobias Berry, 30, of Pollok, for failure to stop and render aid. Lufkin Police arrested Berry in July after they say she rear-ended another woman on the intersection of Frank Street and First Street. Berry is accused of driving around the woman's car and leaving the scene. Police tracked her down at her Angelina County home.

* Devin Bernard Williams, 27, of Lufkin, for driving while intoxicated with a child passenger. A DPS trooper arrested Williams in July after he was allegedly driving drunk on State Highway 103 East. His DWI charge was enhanced to a felony as a child was a passenger in the car.

* Anthony Deckard, 21, of Nacogdoches, Kendrick Hadnot, 22, of Lufkin, Reginald Dewayne Horace, 26, of Lufkin, and Joshua Figueroa, 22, of Lufkin, for illegal dumping. Angelina County deputies arrested the quartet in July after they allegedly dumped 27 tires on Water Well Road. A resident on the road said she caught them dumping them and deputies arrested them after pulling them over after noticing an empty trailer bed attached to their truck.

* Tyson Blake Wells, 30, of Lufkin, and Jarod Clenon Thompson, 30, of Pollok, for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The duo was arrested in August after a shooting on FM 706. Deputies believe they fired shots while chasing another man in a pickup truck.
