A Jamaica Beach woman was charged with a felony Wednesday after being accused of biting her 4-year-old daughter, police said.

The incident happened about 9 p.m. Jan. 14 in Jamaica Beach, according to an affidavit.

Police were called to the house by the young girl's grandparents, according to the affidavit. The grandparents told a police officer their daughter had bitten the 4-year-old on the forearm, according to the affidavit.

The officer saw an "obvious bite wound" on the girl's right arm, according to the affidavit.

The grandparents said their daughter admitted to the bite and said she had become "frustrated with the child," according to the affidavit. Police later interviewed the woman and the child. Both said the bite happened, according to the affidavit.

Jade Belew, 28, of Jamaica Beach, was charged with injury to a child, a third-degree felony. Her bond was listed at $7,500, according to the affidavit.
