The 10-year-old girl arrived at her San Antonio home with her math test.
She scored a 78, which wasn’t nearly good enough for her stepmother,
Laura Cano. In fact, when you score a 78 in the Cano home, that’s cause
for a savage beatdown…
According to the girl, Cano began hitting her in the living room, chased
her into the kitchen and continued to beat her, then followed her to
the bathroom, where she kicked the 10-year-old and stepped on her hand.
no one came to the girl’s aide until she showed up to school with what
are described as “severe injuries.” A teacher noticed visible marks on
the girl’s neck. The girl finally broke down under questioning by the
school nurse, saying she’d been stomped by her stepmother over her
insufficient math score.

the incident because Cano left for a church retreat shortly after the
attack. They thought she’d be better when she returned, but they also
confessed that Cano had beaten the girl with a belt in the past.
was arrested on charges of injury to a child, but she claims she

from anger, drinking, or the sheer euphoria of following Jesus’
teachings on child abuse, we’re not sure.
