Day Care Operator Indicted in Child Injury Case

A Brazos County day care owner accused of causing a severe head injury to a toddler was indicted Thursday by a grand jury.

Dana Rene Munyon, 45, was indicted on one count of injury to a child causing a serious bodily injury, which is a first-degree felony. She is out of jail on $25,000 bond.

Investigators say Munyon was operating an illegal day care operation out of her home.

That's where authorities say one-year-old Alexis Verzal suffered injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome in April.

Doctors who treated Alexis after the incident determined her head injuries were non-accidental and not the result of a fall.

Alexis was taken by her parents to a rehab facility in Nebraska where the family is originally from. Her parents, Brandon and Tiffany, had been working for the Texas A&M athletic department, but have since moved back to Nebraska permanently in order for Alexis to receive care.

Texas A&M Soccer coach G. Guerrieri set up a fund for Alexis and the Verzal family through his Coach G Foundation. A fundraiser is set for Saturday August 9th starting at 6 p.m. Click here for more information.
