ODESSA - An Odessa couple was indicted on Monday on three felony counts of injury to a child.

Back in December, a local store clerk saw a woman making verbal threats to her child.

She notified police, who pulled over the couple, James and Tonya Carroll, a short time later.

Officers noticed the child needed medical attention and was severely malnourished.

The child was taken to medical center hospital before being taken to Lubbock.

The Carroll's were originally arrested on outstanding warrants before being arrested again a few days later on child abuse charges.

The judge has raised their bond from $150,000 to $500,000 each.
