Weld County Mom Pleads Guilty in Child Abuse Case
A mother in Weld County who was accused of abusing her son earlier this year has plead guilty in Weld County District Court.
26 year old Katrina Kennedy-Flores of Lochbuie faces up to 24 months in county jail after she plead guilty to Child Abuse-Knowingly or Recklessly Causing Bodily Injury. The charge is a class 1 misdemeanor.
She was arrested back in May after a video came forward which showed Flores abusing and yelling at her two year old son. According to the affidavit, she was shown using a booster chair as a weapon in the abuse and was also repeatedly hitting him.
Flores also was yelling at the two year old with the statements, "I'm going to kill you" and "You're going to die". All this occurred after he lost her phone charger.
Injuries to the two year old boy included bruises to both arms and legs and two dark spots on his forehead. Police reports say that it resembled bruising.
She is due back in court on January 3rd for sentencing.
