A depraved North Carolina woman has reportedly been charged with attempted murder after she allegedly attempted to castrate her 5-year-old stepson.
Bracey Renee Byrd, 33, of Wilson, is also facing multiple other charges for allegedly abusing the boy, who is her adopted stepson, WNCT-TV reported, citing police.
The abuse investigation was launched in July after the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office received a referral from Wilson County Social Services, the TV network reported. Authorities said the child was taken to a hospital with severe burns, where other injuries were also discovered.
The young child had bruises on her face, arms, head, legs, back and genital area, Wilson Sheriff’s officers said, according to ABC 11.
In addition to the attempted murder charge, Byrd faces charges of child molestation involving aggravated assault, malicious castration, first-degree kidnapping and three other counts of child molestation involving assault.
She was arrested Sept. 30 and is in jail on $2 million bail, ABC 11 reported.
