Man charged with child abuse after slapping 3-year-old girl

LAWTON, Okla._A Lawton man remains in jail after he told his girlfriend he lost his cool and slapped her 3-year-old daughter across the face.

The toddler's mother told police she came home after her boyfriend, Isiah Kaio, texted her he had just, quote, lost it, with her daughter and to come home. When she did, she saw her daughter had a bruise in the shape of a hand print on her face, and when she asked her boyfriend what happened, Kaio told her she was crying because she didn't want to take a nap and he slapped her.
