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.

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.
