Deputies: Wesley Chapel woman beat teen with hanger

WESLEY CHAPEL

Woman beat girl with hanger, deputies say

A woman is accused of beating a 15-year-old girl with a plastic coat hanger.

Regina Marshall, 42, of 26747 Saxony Way, told deputies she used the hanger to discipline the teen, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report.

Deputies said the girl had a scar on her left thigh consistent with being beaten with a hanger. The report said the girl was beaten twice over the course of several months and showed deputies photos of injuries on her arms, legs and back. The report said one attack involved enough force to break the hanger.

Marshall faces two counts of aggravated child abuse without bodily harm. She remained Wednesday in the Pasco County jail in lieu of $20,000 bail.
