A Mora County woman allegedly punished a 6-year-old child routinely by punching him in the stomach, applying force to pressure points and forcing him to run laps and stay in stress positions, according to court documents.

Taylor M. Ealey, 28, of Chacon, was arrested Jan. 15 and charged with felony child abuse following an investigation by the New Mexico State Police Investigations Bureau.

The investigation began Dec. 29 when NMSP officers were called to Alta Vista Regional Hospital in Las Vegas where a 6-year-old boy had been admitted with cuts, bruises and a skull fracture, according to an arrest affidavit filed in Mora Magistrate Court.
