MARLBORO COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A 20-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the abuse of a child.

Mary Blackwell, of Clio, has been charged with unlawful conduct toward a child and inflicting serious bodily injury on a child and possession of a non-controlled substance, according to Sheriff Fred Knight.

The MCSO responded to a call requested by EMS, where a small child was unresponsive and not breathing.

An investigation was launched with the assistance of SLED.

After conducting interviews, the investigation revealed that Blackwell was in the care and custody of the child and did physically assault the child, according to detectives.

The victim did improve at the hospital and has been released to family.

Bond for Blackwell was set at $55,000 at a hearing on Thursday.
