Williston, ND (KEYZ) Formal child abuse charges have been filed against a pair of Williston residents.

In an affidavit obtained by News Radio, Christina Holm and Johnathan Hutchinson have been charged for the abuse of their 8-month-old daughter. Officers with the Williston Police Department were called to CHI St. Alexius on June 19th on the suspicion of abuse. Upon investigation, it was found that the 8-month-old had sustained a cut to her face, several bruises over her body consistent with the shape of adult fingers, and a sunken soft spot.

Law enforcement indicated the bruising was in several stages of healing, which indicates multiple instances of abuse.
