The responding cops took the victim to Saint George Regional Hospital after discovering the child’s condition to be quite serious when they arrived at the site. The toddler was put on a medical hold, according to local authorities, because being tied up with a rope caused significant lacerations. Soon after, another child who appeared to be malnourished was found and sent to the hospital as well.

Ruby will remain behind bars in Washington County without posting bail. She refused to assist the police and asked for legal counsel instead.
