PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A Panama City woman is facing charges after they say a child in her care had a broken leg.
Panama City Police arrested Melita McGee, 49, on a count of aggravated child abuse Friday.
Police say McGee admitted to drinking while babysitting the victim during a 12-hour period, but denied hurting the victim. Police said the child had a non-displaced transverse fracture of the left femur, which a medical professional deemed intentional and consistent with physical abuse.
Police say no other person helped McGee care for the child.
