A Wilmington woman faces child abuse charges after police say she threw her one year old child down the steps.

Police allege Rhiannon Watson got angry when the child wouldn't stop crying, so she punched the child in the mouth, then threw her down the steps.

The child was taken to A.I. duPont Hospital for Children in stable condition with facial injuries.

Watson was arraigned and released on $13,000 bail.
