Sentencing pending for Newton Township mom seen on video slamming 5-year-old son to the ground
A Trumbull County woman will be sentenced later after pleading guilty to four felony counts of child endangering.
Amber McElravy, 27, entered the plea on Tuesday in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court.
According to a complaint filed by a Trumbull County Sheriff's Deputy, McElravy threw her five-year-old son across a room, slammed him to the ground, and continuously struck him with a belt this past summer.
The charge of child endangering is based on an investigation that includes video evidence, according to the deputy's report.
A sentencing date will be scheduled after completion of a pre-sentence investigation ordered by the court.
McElravy's 29-year-old husband Kyle McElravy is awaiting trial on two counts of child endangering and one count of domestic violence.
According to the criminal complaint, the husband is accused of repeatedly striking a child's head with an object.
The prosecutor cited knowledge from a reliable informant and a video recording of the incident in the complaint.
The couple filed for divorce in January.
