HUDSON, TX (KTRE) -

Officers with the Hudson Police Department arrested a couple after their 8-year-old son allegedly showed up at school with bruises on his body.

Dumaurier Desean Applon, 34, and Meagan Marie Stone, 25, both of Hudson, are still being held in the Angelina County Jail. They were both charged with injury to a child, which is a third-degree felony. No bail has been set at this time.

Hudson Police Chief Jimmy Casper said that he got called out to the Hudson School at approximately 11 a.m. Thursday in reference to an 8-year-old boy with bruises on his body. When Casper talked to the boy, the child told him that both his father and mother had assaulted him.

Based on the fact that the boy's injuries were consistent with his story, the Hudson Police Department obtained arrest warrants for Applon and Stone. They were arrested at their home at approximately 4 p.m. Thursday and transported to the Angelina County Jail.
