Tempe Police said that they arrested the woman on Saturday, after being accused of forcing the 3-year-old girl under her care to eat feces as a punishment.
The victim said that she had spent six days at his father’s house along with his girlfriend, 27-year-old Nicole Candelaria. The girl told her mother that she had defecated in the bathtub.
Candelaria became upset and forced her to eat the feces. The two siblings of the girl, ages 3 and 5, also reported that Candelaria forced the victim to eat her excrement.

Bruising was also observed on the girl’s chest, back, sides and legs. During his medical examination, the girl said that Candelaria put soap in her mouth.
Candelaria denied the allegations. Candelaria was charged with one count of child abuse.
