MARIETTA, Ga. — A Marietta woman and her boyfriend have been arrested after their 2-month-old daughter was found to have 20 broken bones and a skull fracture.

Cobb County police officials tell the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that 32-year-old Kevin Straight is charged with second-degree cruelty to children and is being held on $50,000 bond.

They said 22-year-old Antoinette White was charged with aggravated battery, felony cruelty to children and second-degree cruelty to children. She is being held on $100,000 bond.

A Children's Healthcare of Atlanta employee called police after the child was examined at the hospital Tuesday.

Investigators interviewed the couple at the Crimes Against Children Office, then arrested them. A 1-year-old child at the home was taken into protective custody.

all i say to this story is

all i say to this story is go figure. the stupid dumb idiot parents were probably on drugs. lets go and break 20 of their bones so both of them can see how it feels. children are gifts from god. not everyone is blessed to have them. so lets try and do our parts and take care of them the best we know how to do, and thats not abusing these poor kids that did not ask to be born..its to bad kids can't pick their parents because if they could alot of them would not be on welfare today.

Now there could be a

Now there could be a reasonable explanation for the child's broken bones. We don't know all of the facts. I'm adopting a little girl who has the disorder Osteogenesis Imperfecta, or Brittle Bone Disease. Kids born with that (if they're lucky enough to even survive a week, depending on what type the child has) they can break bones doing anything from a simple fall that wouldn't really hurt a normal child to cracking a rib just sneezing. It's a fact of life for a person who lives with OI and many times CPS is called on parents for accusations of abuse despite medical proof that the child is the way they are.

Is that what this is? Who knows. The article is quite vague and leads us to believe the parents are horrible. No one knows if the parents are on drugs from this article, so let's not make any false accusations until facts are drawn. It's the job of the grand jury to determine what happened. Let them decide it.

Somebody should beat them

Somebody should beat them daily for the rest of their lives. Parents are supposed to PROTECT children against anything or anyone who would harm them. There is no excuse for this!

I think the "mother's"

I think the "mother's" $100,000 bond amount suggests there was no readily available explanation that made any sense. Prayers for the child to recover and be placed in a loving home.

Another child harmed by those

Another child harmed by those who are suppose to love and protect them. This makes me sick. Of course there will be those who defend the adult who beat this baby. I will never understand why.

I think people who abuse

I think people who abuse innocent little children should be chained to a fence and tortured the same way they treated those children, only make it 5 times a day every day until they die. There is no worse crime than attacking an innocent little child. We are far too easy on criminals in this country and child abuser's are the one's who get by WAY TOO OFTEN.

You people still want a child

You people still want a child to come into this world, and be abused??? Who will take care of this child now? SHE will, probaly be retarded, and will never be able to lead a normal life!! Are there any takers? Do you realize the pain this child must be in, and she can not tell you how much, and how bad it hurts? I still say if a woman do not want the baby,or feels that she can not take care of it, then she should get an abortion. I am PRO-CHOICE, as long as it is the womans choice!!!!!!

lol Holly, no problem. I can

lol Holly, no problem. I can see where you would make that assumption, but that just seems so aweful and hard to accept a parent would do that to a precious newborn or any child though it happens so often, then reading justins comment, it makes you wonder if some cases, the parents are falsely accused, it has happened. And I agree, it will ALWAYS be Clarks Hill to me too!! haha =)
