Melody LaPointe, 47, and teaching assistants Tarah Tinney, 33, and Augusta Costlow, 27, were charged earlier this week with abandoning or endangering a child over the shocking incident in April 2021.

They are accused of putting the boy into an isolation room within a Liberty Independent School District facility, ABC 13 reported. While confined to the room, the little boy fell and injured himself — but the staff allegedly did nothing to help him. He was locked up until he started eating his own feces and drinking his urine.
