Elizabeth Escalona, 22, faces child abuse charges after she allegedly dragged her daughter through the house in Dallas and tortured her, leaving her with countless injuries and possible brain damage.
The toddler, Joselyn Cedillo, is on life support in hospital. According to police records, glue and paint were stuck to her palms, with skin torn away in places.
A relative told local station News 8 that the girl has broken bones, bruises and head injuries.
The girl was rushed to hospital after Escalona called her mother and said there was something wrong with her daughter.
When the child’s grandmother got the house, the girl was unresponsive.
According to police reports, Escalona dragged her daughter by her feet before gluing her hands to the wall until they bled.
She then allegedly hit the girl in the stomach with a milk jug, kicked her and beat her with a shoe and a belt.
Police said that numerous people had seen the suspect inflict pain on her daughter in the past.
Escalona could face life in prison if convicted.
The girl and three other siblings have been taken into custody.
