A Grand Forks woman has been charged with child abuse, a class C felony, after allegedly biting her one-year-old son on the leg.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that 28-year-old Elizabeth Ann Fettig told a social worker that she bit her son after he had bitten her, according to an affidavit filed in district court.

The incident happened last Wednesday, according to a police report.

Fettig appeared in court Monday and was released on her own recognizance until her preliminary hearing on August 22, the Herald reported.

The child is in his stepfather's custody in Grand Forks.

If convicted, Fettig could face a maximum of five years in jail and/or a $5,000 fine.
