WACO, TX — A judge has rejected a plea deal for an 80-year-old woman that was arrested for allegedly throwing a child onto the hardwood floor.

According to the Robinson Police Department, on August 8, 2018, Glenda Hammons injured a 21-month-old at her licensed daycare by lifting the child by his arms and tossing him onto the floor.

Robinson PD said the incident was recorded by another child, who was in Hammons' care.

With the rejection of the deal, Hammons' case will now proceed to trial.
