According to FOX 47 News, Teresa Gallagher, 31, and Kenedi Wendt, 22, were both charged with 25 counts of abuse or cruelty to a minor for repeatedly abusing your children during nap time.
A parent of a child who attended Little Blessings Learning Center in Sioux Falls told police of the abuse in February. The case was referred to the Department of Social Services who contacted the daycare who then reviewed the surveillance video.
Detectives who watched the disturbing footage described instances in which children were slammed to the ground, yanked by their arms, and stomped on. Investigators added that it wasn’t clear what was triggering the abuse, saying even a slight movement from a child could set of the workers.
The children in the video were between the ages 3 and 4.
