By News Department

CHAPIN, S.C. (WOLO) - A Midlands mother is accused of using a spatula to punish her six-year-old son.

Crystal Maren is charged with cruelty to children.

Last Tuesday, police say the boy arrived at school with injuries to the side of his face and ear. He claims his mother hit him with the cooking utensil several times for not listening.

The Department of Social Services placed the boy and his one-year-old sister in their grandmother's care.
