A Fostoria woman was arrested Wednesday and charged with child endangerment for allegedly causing serious injuries to an 18-month-old girl in July.
Tellina M. Tenney, 24, was charged with the second-degree felony for allegedly causing serious facial fractures and bruising to the girl July 8 at Tenney's residence.
The girl also had first-degree burns on her torso as well as burns on her arms, legs and feet, and suffered possible retinal hemorrhaging due to strangulation, according to documents from Fostoria Municipal Court.
Tenney had admitted the girl was under her care during the time she was injured, and it was determined no other adult was present when the injuries occurred.
Det. Kevin Reinbolt of the Seneca County Sheriff's Office said Tenney had been watching the girl for a few hours while her father was at work, and after he arrived home, she was taken to the hospital by the father and Tenney.
Reinbolt said neighbors in the trailer court did not report hearing anything following the incident. He said he was unsure whether Tenney had a criminal background.
The girl, who was in Toledo Children's Hospital for a couple of days, is staying with a foster family, Reinbolt said.
Tenney appeared in court Thursday, where her bond was set at $150,000, according to documents from Fostoria Municipal Court. She is being held at the Seneca County Jail.
Tenney is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Thursday. If found guilty, she faces a maximum penalty of $15,000 and eight years in prison.
