Rachel Stevens, 28, and her partner Kayla Jones, 25, were booked into the Muskogee County Jail Tuesday on charges of felony child abuse by injury and child neglect. The case first came to light in early December when Stevens' 5-year-old son was flown to St John Medical Center in Tulsa suffering from seizures and lesions on his face. http://i.***************/i/pix/2016/01/13/19/3023C23700000578-0-image-a-20_1452714285726.jpg +4 http://i.***************/i/pix/2016/01/13/19/3023C23C00000578-0-image-m-21_1452714527349.jpg +4 Vile charges: Rachel Stevens (left), 28, and her girlfriend Kayla Jones (right), 25, have been charged with felony child abuse by injury and child neglect for allegedly torturing Stevens' 5-year-old son for months http://i.***************/i/pix/2016/01/13/19/3023E30400000578-0-image-m-28_1452714829765.jpg +4 Locked up: The couple were handcuffed and booked into an Oklahoma county prison on Tuesday Doctors at the hospital contacted police after determining that the child had several broken bones in various stages of healing and appeared malnourished. While the boy was receiving medical treatment, he suffered two strokes 'due to his trauma,' according to an affidavit cited by Tulsa World. Investigators subsequently interviewed the little boy and learned that the child had been tied up, had duct tape placed over his eyes and had been kept in a locked room, the document states. The toddler also claimed that his mother struck him on the hand with a hammer, and that both she and Jones hit him with a belt all over his body. According to police, the horrific abuse went on for several months. The little boy said on one occasion, his step-mother kicked him in the groin until he bled. http://i.***************/i/pix/2016/01/13/19/3023E30A00000578-0-image-a-33_1452714889881.jpg http://i.***************/i/pix/2016/01/13/19/3023E2FC00000578-0-image-m-32_1452714879157.jpg Court documents state Stevens, pictured left with the victim and his twin brother, struck her son with a hammer and whipped him with a belt. The toddler (right) also said he had been kept in a locked room Cover-up: Police say Stevens and Jones started online fundraiser claiming their child was suffering from seizures after taking a fall The station NewsOn6 reported that the couple then launched a GoFundMe campaign for Stevens' son, claiming that the toddler was picking his own face and was having seizures after suffering a fall. Police said the suspects, who reportedly have been together for 18 months, shard their Muskogee home with the victim’s twin brother and 7-year-old sister, but they do not believe those children were mistreated. More than a month later, the 5-year-old remains at the Tulsa hospital getting treated for his injuries. His two siblings have been taken into the custody of the Department of Human Services. Stevens and Jones are both due back in court later this month.
