Police have arrested a second suspect, Kelsey Terrell Belcher, in connection with this case. Officials with the Greenwood Police Department say that Belcher was arrested at about 3 p.m. Tuesday. Officials believe Belcher is at least partially responsible for injuries sustained by Dean's 2-year-old daughter that led to the child being transported to the Augusta Burn Center. Officials said that Belcher is Dean's boyfriend.


GREENWOOD, SC – An arrest has been made in a child abuse case that led to a 2-year-old child being taken to the Augusta Burn Center for a severe burn on her foot.

Officials with the Greenwood Police Department believe that Dabryanna Njheri Dean, 19, of 225 Lowell Avenue, is responsible for injuries to her daughter that included a severe burn to her right foot. The child was taken to the Augusta Burn Center for further treatment of the burn after initially being treated in the emergency room at Self Regional Healthcare, according to police documents.

The 2-year-old child was brought to the ER by her grandmother, where police responded after receiving a call from hospital staff about the child’s condition, according to reported from the Greenwood Police Department.

The Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office was already investigating an incident involving the child after a report was filed last week about possible abuse of the child.

Dean is charged with unlawful conduct toward a child. Her bond was set at $50,000 cash or surety and she is currently being held at the Greenwood County Detention Center.

People keep defending the mom, "Ny is her WORLD...she would never do that"...maybe she wouldn't do it, but she wouldn't seek help for her either. People like this need to be sterilized! No matter who is to blame for the injury, the mother is to blame for neglecting to seek help for this little girl who depends on her mom to protect and take care of her!

I worked with Daybranna and I will tell you now that regardless of what you think someone is/isn't capable of you will never know. This child was in pain, everyone's focus should be on Ny, pray for her and for her abusers to get their punishment. Daybranna should have known that Ny was in pain and severely hurt. There is no reason she shouldn't have seeked attention for her. Point blank everyone needs to realize that we never truly know what anyone is capable of until it happens, I just hope Ny will never be hurt this way again and that she will be able to overcome this hurdle in her young life

I am a friend of Dabryanna and i just don't totally understand what's going on. But i will say that it is so easy for us outsiders to judge a sistuation without actually knowing what went on. So therefore i will keep my facts and opinions to myself. But i must say that i will be keeping Dabryanna and NyBug in my prayers.
