HENDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - A Payne Springs woman arrested in connection with her four-year-old child shooting his sister in the face with a 22-caliber pistol is now in the Henderson County Jail.

Records show Bryanna Timms, 34, was booked into the jail on charges of endangering a child and make firearm accessible to a child on Tuesday. Her bail is set at $35,000.

Timms and her boyfriend, David Setharia Whittick, 33, was arrested following an investigation after Timms' daughter was shot in the face on Feb. 5 with a 22-caliber pistol. An investigation revealed her four-year-old brother shot her after he took the pistol from a pillar in the living room.

Both were arrested in Hopkins County. Whittick came back to Henderson County on Feb. 15. Timms stayed in Hopkins County to address a charge of hindering apprehension after deputies there say she hindered their efforts in arresting Whittick.

According to an affidavit filed with the Hopkins County Sheriff's Office, Timms was stopped traveling north on State Highway 19, south of Sulphur Springs. She said she did not know where Whittick was, according to the affidavit. While she was being taken to jail, her GPS was sending alerts from her phone, so the deputy drove in the direction the GPS was directing until they arrived at a hotel. The affidavit states Timms said her mother got her a room and she did not think he was there. Deputies found him there and arrested him.
