BAYBORO, N.C. - A Pamlico County couple is charged with abusing a 4-month-old baby girl.

Deputies say they arrested Heather Bennett and Thomas Batts Friday morning. They’re both charged with 2 counts of felony child abuse.

The Pamlico County Sheriff’s Office says the Department of Social Services was called Friday about the girl, who had 3 fractured ribs and a torn up nose.

Bennett has a previous charge of child abuse in Harnett County in 2009.

The pair are under a $250,000 bond.
