DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) – A Davenport day care operator has been accused of injuring two infants. Court records say 44-year-old Amy Smith is charged with child endangerment causing injury and four counts of child endangerment causing serious injury.

Her arraignment is scheduled for Oct. 5. An arrest affidavit says authorities opened an investigation in April when they were called about an infant who’d been hospitalized with several bone fractures. Officers also learned that another infant in Smith’s care was injured in November 2015. The affidavit says a doctor said the injuries were a result of child beating.
