Police: Mom beat child over potty training

Posted: Updated:
FORT WORTH, Texas -

There's a new development in the case of a teenage mother who is in jail accused of beating her 3-year-old daughter to death.

Fort Worth police said 19-year-old Janice Anthony beat 3-year-old Paris Howard over potty training.

She was charged with injury to a child with serious bodily injury.

The charges against her could be upgraded once the medical examiner makes an official ruling on the little girl's cause of death.

Earlier this month, police were called to Anthony's apartment in the 5400 block of Enclave Circle in southwest Fort Worth.

Police said they found the 3-year-old's body on the floor.

Investigators believe she had been hit several times in the days before she died.

It was one week before her fourth birthday.
