Deputies: Baby sitter arrested after pit bull bit girl, 2

Authorities have arrested a West Virginia baby sitter after they say her dog attacked a 2-year-old girl in her care.

The Times West Virginian ( ) reports that deputies arrested 34-year-old Opal L. Caston on Wednesday and that she faces one felony count of child neglect creating risk of injury.

Marion County Sheriff's Department Cpl. Russell Garrett wrote in a criminal complaint that Caston's pit bull attacked the child in June. The complaint also states that the child had severe wounds to her head and lip and also needed stitches for a puncture wound to the neck.

Caston posted a $10,000 bond Wednesday. It's unclear if she has an attorney.
