ODESSA - An Odessa woman is accused of beating her boyfriend's toddler then trying to cover the bruises with makeup.

On Tuesday, an 18-year-old mother called officers saying her two year old had come home with bruises all over her face.

That's after the toddler spent time at her father's house.

Turns out, the father was out of town and it was his girlfriend who was watching the girl.

Bonnie Creel admitted that she got angry with the little girl when she wouldn't eat so she forced her mouth open and made a chewing motion then slapped her several times.

Creel told officers when she's angry she snaps and loses control.

But probably the most disturbing confession is when she said she put makeup on the girl to cover the bruises.

Creel is charged with injury to a child with intentional bodily injury
