A woman is facing multiple charges related to child abuse after Charleston County Sheriff's Office investigators say she violently shook and hit three infants at a daycare center where she worked.

Tina Rose Nye, 55, was arrested Friday, April 9, after a joint investigation by the Sheriff's Office and the Charleston Police Department.

Affidavits provided by law enforcement say Nye was caught on video assaulting three infants earlier in the week at Carousel Early Childhood Center on Jenkins Road in the West Ashley area.

The infants ranged in ages from 3 months to 5 months old. Video showed Nye holding the children upside down while violently shaking them, and hitting them in the head, back and other parts of their bodies as they cried.

Nye is charged with two counts of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, one count of second degree assault and battery, and three counts of unlawful conduct toward a child.

Nye remains in jail at the Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center. A magistrate judge on Saturday morning denied her bond, as is the court's prerogative on certain violent offenses.
