ROCKPORT, IN (WFIE) -

A Spencer County couple is in jail after an investigation into child battery and neglect of four children.

The children were put into foster care by Child Protective Services after an investigation by Rockport Police.

CPS presented allegations to state police that 37-year-old Johnny Hutchinson hit his girlfriend's three-year-old several times, leaving marks and bruising on her legs and back.

Troopers say their investigation revealed that 33-year-old Christina Crabtree was aware that Hutchinson had spanked the child.

In addition, troopers say that Hutchinson physically abused Crabtree's three other children on several occasions.

Hutchinson and Crabtree are both charged with four counts of neglect of a dependent. Hutchinson faces an additional charge of battery on a person less than 14 years of age.
