Arraignment set for Carthage man charged with felony child abuse
Lance Christopher Breeding, 27, is being held in the Jasper County Jail on a $50,000 cash-only bond.
A Carthage Police Department news release said the child had to have surgery on the broken leg and that her abuse also included severe bruising on her back, buttocks and legs.
Breeding told officers he spanked the girl for disobeying him, then pushed her into a room causing her to hit her dresser when she failed to clean her room.
When she sat on the floor, he kicked her and told her to get up, according to the news release.
