Abilene man indicted for injuring girl, 3


ABILENE, Texas - A Taylor County grand jury indicted a man for injuring a little girl.

According to the indictment, the 3-year-old victim told police she was slapped by Peyton Odell Preston, 28, two days before Christmas.

Police said she had visible bruises and finger marks on her face.

Preston told police he put his hand over the girl's mouth and jaw because she was screaming and he squeezed too hard.

He was arrested Dec. 23 and released Christmas Day on $10,000 bond.
