Ashley Greenhill / Clint Anderson - Couple Arrested On Allegations Of Repeatedly Biting 2-Year-Old Boy
Florence, Tennessee (The Weekly Vice) -- Clint Matthew Anderson, 22, and Ashley Fawn Greenhill, 21, have been arrested on accusations of repeatedly biting a 2-year-old boy.
Police originally arrested Greenhill on September 18 for allegedly biting her two year old son multiple times and causing other injuries. Greenhill was arrested after the boy's grandparents found bite marks, severe bruising and scratch marks on the child's face, neck, arm, buttocks, head and back.
Now, Greenhill's boyfriend Clint Anderson has also been arrested in connection to the case. Both adults have been charged with felony torture or willful abuse of a child under 18 by a responsible and 3rd-degree domestic violence assault.
Investigators say the child's grandparents usually watch the 2-year-old boy, but that he spent a few days with his mother. When the boy was returned to his grandparents, they found at least six bite marks, scratches and large bruises on the boy.
Detectives believe the alleged abuse occurred between September 14 and 16. Police first learned of the injuries were reported on September 16.
Greenhill told police that the bite marks were caused by another child, but medical examiners have concluded that the bite marks are consistent with that of an adult, not a child. Greenhill also stated that child's other injuries were caused by falling off of a tricycle, however doctors say the child's injuries are not consistent with that explanation either.
Anderson and Greenhill were booked into the Lauderdale County Detention Center without bail. Court records indicate Anderson was already out on bail after his arrest in April on charges of burglary, theft, criminal mischief and stolen property.
