GRAPELAND, TX (KTRE) - A Grapeland woman was arrested on Wednesday for hitting a child multiple times with a wire object.

Katina Gayle Flynn,42, is charged with injury to a child after she allegedly hit a 9 year old girl on the arm, back and buttocks with the wire end of a fly swatter.

According to an arrest affidavit, a Houston County deputy was on routine patrol when he saw the young girl running down FM 228. It was after he spoke to a witness that he learned the girl had run away from home.

Once the deputy apprehended the girl he learned that she was in the care of Flynn and that she had run away after being hit.

The affidavit states that the child’s story was consistent with the marks left on the child’s body.
