Laura Sosa Alonzo recently made her first appearance in Platte County Court. The 30-year-old faces two child abuse charges in connection with incidents that allegedly began in August and continued through October.
Alonzo’s daughters, ages 10 and 12, say the abuse began after their mother’s boyfriend moved in with them. He is not accused of hitting them, but the girls told investigators he threatened them.
Alonzo is accused of hitting the girls with various items, including a plastic clothes hanger and a cable television wire.
Alonzo has been released from custody on a personal recognizance bond. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 3.
Court records do not list an attorney.
