MUSKOGEE, Okla. — Two Oklahoma women are accused of abusing a 5-year-old over the course of several months, the Tulsa World reports

Rachel Stevens, 28, and Kayla Jones, 25, are charged with felony child abuse by injury and child neglect after allegedly beating a 5-year-old boy so severely that he suffered two strokes, according to the report.

In early December, police say the boy was airlifted to OU Medical Center, where doctors discovered he had multiple broken bones at different stages of healing and was malnourished. According to an affidavit, the boy also had lesions on his face and was having seizures.

Court records show the boy suffered two strokes due to trauma while he was being treated at OU Medical.

Investigators say they learned the boy had been locked in a room, bound with duct tape over his eyes, beaten with belts and a hammer, and had been kicked in the genitals until he bled. The boy reportedly told police that his mother, Stevens, and Stevens’ girlfriend, Jones, were responsible for the abuse.

Police say another 5-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl also lived in the home, but they do not believe those children were abused, the Tulsa World reports.

The Department of Human Services has taken those children into custody. The injured 5-year-old boy is still receiving treatment.

Stevens and Jones are both being held in the Muskogee jail.

      Any psych would say the same; repressed hate.
      And using the other child to “carte blanche” your contrast is also flawed.

    They don’t think the other two children were abused? Yeah right! Only because the other two were not bleeding from the genitals at the time. Stupid. Horrible. Argh.

    They should be beaten every day just as they beat this poor child. These women should never know another day of peace for the rest of their miserable lives. And to say that they had no hatred toward men, knowing that they beat this poor child’s MALE genitalia until it bled is stupid. These women are most definitely hateful and hate filled.

    WOW! Unbelievable!! It hurts to read stuff lil this, my prayer goes out for the boy and every other abused child!!! PEOPLE…These children do not get the luxury of picking their parents, we birth them into this world. If you birth a child into this world, take responsibility!!!!! Protect your children, if you can’t handle child type pressures.. .USE PROTECTION!!! Our children trust us parents, shame on these women!!! I promise one thing, they will be judged one day and will burn for eternity!!! Until then, they will be be beaten, raped, and tortured in prison by women who are serving life, and can’t see their kids. Karma and fate are real!
