PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – A 21-year-old mother has been charged for allegedly abusing her young daughter.

Providence Police told ABC6 News on Tuesday that Latifat Kotun of Providence was charged for causing “severe injuries” to her three-year-old daughter.

This comes after DCYF announced last month that they were investigating the case after the little girl was admitted to Hasbro Children’s Hospital with sign of maltreatment.

The child’s injuries are non-life threatening.
