Police have added yet another charge to the Texas mother accused of abusing her children. 

Sara Anne Woody, 25, of Burkburnett, near Wichita Falls, faces a felony-level charge of injury to a child with serious bodily or mental injury, according to Times Records News.

The North Texas woman has racked up nearly 30 criminal charges for allegedly abusing her stepsons. Police say she assaulted them, forced them to lick the rim of a toilet bowl covered with feces, beat one child’s genitals with a belt for wetting the bed, and made them drink an apple cider-vinegar concoction in order to vomit “stolen” food.

Investigations into Woody began in March 2016, when Burkburnett Police said one of the children visited a Wichita Fall hospital for a lip injury. During a forensic interview with police, the victim said his stepmother hit him with a metal spoon several times.

According to Woody’s arrest affidavit, she’s also accused of depriving one of the children of food and locking him in a closet over night as punishment.

Her husband, Jonathan Darrell Woody, was arrested last year on multiple counts of child endangerment. At the time, he told police the injuries were from rough-housing. 

Burkburnett Police said the father was aware of the abuse “but never did anything to stop it and told the boys to lie to police,” according to The Dallas Morning News.
