Second victim found in Wee Care investigation

CHICKASHA — A second charge was filed against Kaitlyn Murphy - the Wee Care employee accused of breaking a toddler's arm last month - today for endangering another child.

The Grady County District Attorney's office released an affidavit stating there is video evidence of Murphy throwing another 13-month-old baby.

According to the affidavit, Murphy can clearly be seen throwing the child approximately 36 inches in the video.

The video was shown to the victim's mother, Kristin Burton who said she wished to press criminal charges against Murphy.

Chickasha Police Department Major Elip Moore said CPD is still reviewing video at this moment.

"We have more information as early as next week," he said.

Calls were placed to First Assembly of God Senior Pastor Paul Knight, the church that owns Wee Care, but they were not returned by press time.

Murphy could face up to life in prison if convicted. She is currently out on bond.
