BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Police have arrested a northwestern Arkansas woman accused of abusing two children at a day care.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that Corrine Lange surrendered to Bentonville police June 13. She was arrested on counts of third-degree assault.
Police say a child told her mother June 5 that a Children’s Hour Daycare teacher held her against the wall until she couldn’t breathe for talking during nap time. Police say security footage shows Lange holding the child for 40 seconds.
The girl also accused the 59-year-old of pinning another child for “not listening.”
