MANVEL

Woman accused of injuring child

A Manvel woman was arrested and charged with injuring a child after an argument escalated inside her home just after midnight Saturday, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Christy Ann Maldonado, 39, and her daughter were arguing about the girl sitting on the kitchen counter of their Oak Drive home, court records indicate.

When her daughter refused to get off the counter, Maldonado began “shoving her through the residence” before throwing her on the ground and choking her, according to court records.

Maldonado’s son recorded the incident, which authorities watched after being called to the home, court records indicate.

Maldonado was released Sunday from the Brazoria County jail on $15,000 bond, court records show.

If convicted of the third-degree felony, Maldonado could face up to 10 years in prison.
