Keyla Marie Wade, 22, was arraigned on May 29 on charges of injury to a child over the Memorial Day weekend.

The Killeen Police Department responded to McLane Children’s Hospital on Aug. 15, 2020, after hearing about injuries to a child, according to the arrest affidavit.

The medical records showed the child had multiple healing fractures: right upper leg, a right radius (arm), two ribs and a left lower leg. The medical notes said, “fractures to his right femur is a nonspecific type of fracture, however given his age and development level and lack of history of trauma remains concerning for inflicted injury,” according to the arrest affidavit.

A detective with KPD conducted a pre and post-polygraph interview of Wade where she admitted to grabbing the child by the leg and jerking him from his back to his stomach with a twisting motion.

Wade was in the Bell County Jail Tuesday on $100,000 bond.
