Authorities arrested a woman Monday in connection to an alleged child abuse case.

Cheyanne Chalkley, 22, faces two charges for injury to a child for allegedly beating three young children with belts, switches and her hands according to an arrest affidavit.

The oldest child, 10, told police of an instance where her father, James Chalkley, 31, shoved her head into a wall while Cheyanne used a switch with thorns to strike her. James and Cheyanne allegedly "take turns" when beating the children, the affidavit seasons.

The child recalled another instance when her father found cat feces in a closet and smeared the "wet diahhrea" on their faces. James made the youngest child, 3, eat the feces because he believed the children intentionally refused to clean it, the affidavit states.

The children told detectives that their father used a shock collar on them and that it hurt because it made their skin green afterwards.

James was arrested in early October after an elementary teacher noticed bruising on the student's back, launching an investigation by Child Protective Services. Bruises at different stages of healing were found on the child's legs and arms.

He is also facing a charge for injury to a child.
