Two teenagers are charged with endangering a child after a toddler was found injured and semi-conscious at a motel in Conroe.
Michelle Smith and Gregory Garcia, both 19, are accused of putting the 23-month-old girl in danger.
Conroe police were called to the Motel 6 on the North Freeway just before midnight on Monday. Officers said they found the girl with significant injuries.
Police said she was immediately taken to Conroe Regional Medical Center and later transferred to Hermann Children's Hospital in the Texas Medical Center.
Garcia, the child’s caretaker, and Smith, the child’s mother, both denied knowing how the child was injured and being responsible for her during an initial investigation, according to Conroe police.
Police said their investigating continues and further charges are pending.
