Daycare worker charged with abuse toward foster children

Posted: Updated:

A co-worker at a daycare center turned a Huntsville woman in to authorities on suspicion of child abuse of two of her foster children.

Meghan Hargress was arrested Friday and charged with one count of aggravated child abuse and two counts of torture/willful abuse of a child.

According to Dr. Harry Hobbs with the Huntsville Police Department, Hargress was the foster mother of two girls and a boy. One girl was found to be slightly scalded, possibly from hot water, and the boy had bruises and abrasions on his body.

Hargress is currently in the Metro Jail without bond. Officials said the children are back in the DHR system. No further information has been released.
