A Dothan mother is accused of torturing her child.
Investigators say a school personnel member notified the Dothan Police Department after bruises were located on a child’s body. A press release from the police department states that a further investigation led to the determination that the marks were a result of the mother striking the child.
Shakeerah Faye Jackson, 24, of Honeysuckle Road, was arrested. She faces a charge of torture, and willful abuse of a child under the age of 18 by responsible person. Her bond has been set at $60,000.
Due to the nature of the case, no further information has been released by authorities.
