Mother Arrested on Charges of Child Abuse

A Panama City woman has been arrested for allegedly abusing one of her children.

Kelly Mitchell, 28, is charged with one count of aggravated child abuse, but that could change.

Police say officers noticed suspicious injuries on two of Mitchell's children after they responded to a disturbance at Mitchell's apartment.

Investigators say they later determined that Mitchell had severely punished her six year old child with a belt.

An investigation into whether Mitchell may have abused her other child is continuing.
