NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A Nacogdoches County grand jury has indicted a 34-year-old woman on a felony injury to a child charge in connection to allegations that she slapped her 7-year-old son in the face several times and pulled his hair back in June.
When Jessica Patricia Muna, of Nacogdoches, was arrested on June 2, she was charged with third-degree injury to a child. She posted a bail amount of $15,000, and she has since been released from the Nacogdoches County Jail.
Muna was among the 12 people that were indicted when the Nacogdoches grand jury met earlier this month.

The complainant told the deputy that Muna slapped her son's face several times and also pulled his hair. When the NCSO deputy spoke to Muna, she admitted that she slapped her son in the face with the back of her hand twice and pulled his hair, the affidavit stated.
Muna was arrested at the scene and taken to the county jail.
