Child abuse in Great Mills al­leged

Sean Paul Mon­roe McMil­lion, 36, of Great Mills has been charged af­ter re­port­edly strik­ing two chil­dren with a belt, “leav­ing vis­i­ble signs of in­juries.”

Ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments, the vic­tims had “been in­structed to do var­i­ous chores” and find a pair of shoes for another sib­ling on Sept. 25. When the two chil­dren had stopped as­sist­ing, McMil­lion al­legedly “be­gan to strike them with a belt.” One vic­tim had an in­jury to her up­per right arm “con­sis­tent with be­ing struck by a belt … buckle,” charg­ing pa­pers state.

The fa­ther told deputies he struck “the vic­tims with his right hand on the but­tocks above their cloth­ing as he held the belt for show in his left hand.” McMil­lion said he didn’t know how the vic­tim sus­tained the in­jury to her arm.

Charg­ing doc­u­ments state McMil­lion has been in­ves­ti­gated for a sim­i­lar mat­ter in June 2016. McMil­lion has been charged with two counts of child abuse and two counts of as­sault, both sec­ond de­gree.
