LAPORTE — A woman facing a felony battery charge is expected in court Wednesday.
Billy Krueger, 29, is accused of hitting a child at the daycare she runs out of her home in LaPorte.
Authorities say in April, a child put too much toilet paper in a toilet, clogging it. The child says Krueger then slapped him twice and hit him in the mouth twice.
That same day, an officer noticed red marks on the boy’s face and a cut on his lips.
Police say the incident was the third report in three months of a child getting hurt at Krueger’s home.
Krueger’s hearing is expected to start at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.
