Babysitter Charged After Dog Attacks Child


Police arrested a woman on a child neglect charge in West Virginia.

According to Marion County officials, 34-year-old Opal Caston was babysitting a two-year-old girl, when her dog attacked and bit the girl. 

They say Caston had her 14-year-old daughter text the mother of the 2-year-old about the incident, but downplayed the seriousness of the injuries. According to police, she essentially said it was a minor scratch. 

Deputies say she also didn’t get the girl necessary medical treatment.

Caston is charged with child neglect creating risk of injury.
