LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville woman is accused of abusing a 5-year-old child.

According to an arrest warrant, Sarah Afaili, 24, was taking care of the child from February 10 through February 14. When the child returned to the father, he noticed marks on the victim's neck.

Court documents say the father confronted Afaili and she admitted to grabbing the child's neck and biting him. She said this was due to his bad behavior.
