Chickasha Police are reviewing up to 200 hours of video captured by surveillance cameras inside the "Wee Care" daycare facility at the First Assembly of God in Chickasha.

The investigation began after complaints were filed against Kaitlyn Murphy, a daycare worker, later arrested and charged with the child abuse of 1-year-old Gunner.

Gunner ended up in the hospital with a broken arm. Court documents show Murphy admitted she may have been too rough with Gunner while trying to get him to take a nap. She also admitted to investigators she has anger problems, and when she gets mad, she forgets what happens.

Now, investigators say it's possible Gunner is not the only victim in this case. It's possible investigators will present additional charges to the Grady County District Attorney.

Kaitlyn Murphy is currently out of jail on bond. We tried to talk with her, but no one answered the door at her home.
