A 3-year-old boy who suffered a broken leg at daycare reportedly told police his caretaker kicked him. Court papers show Toni Murphy,25, admitted to police that the child was injured while in her care.

The boy was attending daycare at Edmond's First Church of the Nazarene. According to a report, the boy told police Murphy "kicked him while in her room."

Court papers show the boy "suffered a broken femur" while at daycare and that Murphy "was the only adult in the room" at the time of the injury.

The detective also reported that Murphy "agreed that the injury occurred while the victim was in her care."

When asked her if the injury could have happened "while she was holding him down and possibly applying too much pressure," Murphy stated, "That's the only thing I can think of so I'm guessing yeah."
