An Onslow County couple is charged with child abuse after their 4-month old child had his toes chewed off by a dog.

Deputies say Robie Lynn Jenkins and Tremayne Spillman were dog-sitting for their friend’s pit bull overnight.

Jenkins told authorities she was on medication, and didn’t hear the baby cry out in the night, even though she was sleeping in the same room as him.

She said she discovered his injuries when she was changing his diaper in the morning.

The baby was taken to the hospital, where he may have to have his foot amputated.

Jenkins and Spillman are now facing charges of felony child abuse.
