Police: Woman Beat Child Over School Grade

(Memphis) A Memphis mother is charged with beating her 6-year-old son so badly, he had to be taken to the hospital.

When we knocked on Latasha Green’s door, a man cracked the door open. As soon as he learned who we were, he walked away.

Memphis Police told us the boy kept throwing up at school last month and was sluggish.

The child ended up at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital where doctors found the boy had cuts, a cracked skull, and a damaged pancreas.

The child’s body was punched and kicked and he had been whipped in the face.

He reportedly told police he was beaten because he received a ‘needs improvement’ for conduct on his report card.

Green was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse and is out on a $25,000 bond.
