A 16 month old is now in the care of the state after his mother and a man in the home are arrested for cruelty. 30-year-old Jerry Chew and 23-year-old Michelle Littleton were arrested Sunday.

It happened in the 15 hundred block of Bringhurst after authorities saw bruises and other marks on the child’s legs and stomach. They say Chew admitted to spanking the child because he wouldn’t stop crying.
