SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - A Summerville mother has now been arrested on charges of unlawful conduct towards a child after police say her boyfriend beat her 4-year-old girl with an extension cord.

Keith Williams, 31, of Summerville, is accused of beating Jordan Suzanne Reynolds' 4-year-old girl with an extension cord because she dropped a 5-month-old baby. Williams turned himself in to police Thursday and Friday, Reynolds was charged in the incident.

Both suspects were in bond court Friday. Williams received a $150,000 bond and Reynolds received a $75,000 bond.

According to an affidavit, the victim had contusions and hematomas on her stomach, arms, buttocks, back, thighs and legs, which resembled a cord. The victim also had dried blood and bruising on her body.

Reynolds, the child's mother, was charged because the victim told police that Reynolds looked at the child's injuries, but did not seek medical assistance, an affidavit said. A police report says that Williams is Reynolds' boyfriend.

According to Summerville police, Williams' ex-wife was asked to babysit the victim and her two siblings. When she arrived to babysit, she asked Williams why the child was walking differently and he told her he hit her with an extension cord because she dropped her 5-month-old sibling. Williams' ex-wife then took the child to the hospital.

Williams is also charged with unlawful conduct towards a child.
