A Houston couple is accused in the alleged abuse of a four-year-old girl left in their care.

On August 13, Eutha Nicole Oliver reportedly took the little girl to Children's Protective Services and told officials there she was turning over a child who had been left in her care. Court documents state that an ambulance then took the little girl to Memorial Hermann Hospital because she was suffering pelvic fractures as well as other bruises and injuries.

The girl reportedly told police that Oliver kicked and stomped on her, and whipped her with a belt on numerous occasions. The girl said the abuse began shortly after she arrived at Oliver's home on August 3 and continued daily until she was taken to CPS. She also told police that Oliver's husband did nothing to stop the abuse.

Oliver's husband, Shawn Conery Carter, told police no abuse ever happened at his home, that the girl arrived with some of the injuries, and inflicted some of the bruises on herself while she was there. He added that he and Oliver had even considering adopting the little girl, according to court documents.

Oliver is charged with injury to a child and Carter is charged with injury to a child by omission.
