Police: Ariz. woman bit boyfriend's daughter

Posted: Updated:

KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - An Arizona woman is facing a child abuse charge after authorities say she bit her boyfriend's 9-year-old daughter.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports that 23-year-old Marcianna Sachiko Nissel was arrested last week after admitting "her involvement" to Kingman police.

Kingman Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Sochocki says the girl had "significant bruising" from the bite.

Authorities say Nissel was arrested after a school resource officer learned of the alleged abuse.

Nissel is charged with felony domestic violence by child abuse.

It was not known if she had an attorney.

Child Protective Services released the child into the care of relatives.
