A daycare worker is behind bars for abusing a two-year-old boy.
It happened at Excellence Learning Daycare on Crums Lane in Louisville Friday.
Officials say 63-year-old Vernice Aniton held the child's face and slapped him several times after the toddler got out of his seat.
Police and emergency crews were called to the daycare. Aniton has since been charged with criminal abuse. She pleaded guilty to that charge in court Saturday.
The manager of the daycare says Aniton was hired a few months ago after an extensive background check. She has since been terminated.
