Court records detail that the child was taken to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital with severe bruising to multiple parts of his body. 

He also had abrasions to his arm and face. 

The hospital also said the boy had excess creatine kinase which is caused by extreme workouts, and severe bruising. 

Jaquan Stokes told police she and Raven Porter paddled the child three to four times a week. They said the cause of the beatings was that he received an “N” on his report card for conduct. On Nov. 5, Stokes said the boy received an “S” for conduct. Stokes and Porter whipped him with a paddle for that as well, police said. 

The couple also forced the boy to do pushups, squats and running drills when he misbehaved. 

The two are charged with aggravated child abuse.
