An illegal alien is accused of abusing two children by hitting them with belts and forcing them into ice baths.
Meiri Josari Lara-Oliva, a 23-year-old illegal alien from Honduras, was arrested by the Cobb County, Georgia, Sheriff’s Office this week and charged with two counts of first-degree child cruelty, one count of aggravated assault, one count of aggravated battery, and one count of third-degree child cruelty after allegedly forcing two children into ice baths.
According to law enforcement officials, Lara-Oliva hit one of the children in the face with a belt and hit the second child on the back with a belt. After, officials said Lara-Oliva forced both children into an ice bath.
Officials said Lara-Oliva submerged one of the children in the ice bath “with intent to murder.” A third child told officials they witnessed all of the abuse.
Lara-Oliva is being held at the Cobb County Jail thanks to a detainer by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.
