Police: Mother arrested for injuries to 23-month-old son

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Springfield Township woman was arrested after injuries to her child were reported to the police.

Camille Christophel, 23, was arrested Friday in the 1900 block of Washington Circle around 10 a.m.
The incident report states, "she failed to bring [her] 23-month-old child to [the] hospital for 5 days with a broken leg."
The incident happened in December of last year, but the mother was indicted 2 days ago and arrested just today. The report said her son had, "numerous bruises, and two wrist fractures that appeared to be two weeks old."
"A child can't speak for himself so someone has to speak for the child," a relative of the child who wanted to remain anonymous said. 
The report states the mother, "made suicidal statements if she was arrested."
Amanda Hoffman lives next door to where Christophel used to live. 
"I know he fell down the steps a couple of times and hit his head," said Hoffman. "It's not that she didn't adhere to his needs, but it wasn't instant. When you have a child that is under the age of two they fall a lot," she continued.
FOX19 NOW did contact Hamilton County Job and Family Services, but calls were not returned.
