DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A Davenport woman accused of pouring rubbing alcohol on her 2-year-old disabled child and threatening to kill the toddler while live streaming the incident on social media will face charges in court next month.
The Quad-City Times reports that 29-year-old Darshanda McNeal will be arraigned Sept. 6 on a misdemeanor charge of child endangerment after she waived her preliminary hearing Thursday.
McNeal remains jailed on $5,000 bond.
Davenport police were sent to McNeal's home Aug. 9 for a report of a person abusing and threatening to kill the child. Police say she was live streaming the incident on Facebook using her cellphone. Officers were able to intervene and the child was taken to a local hospital as precaution. Police say the child did not suffer any physical injuries.
