FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM)  – Two children are being treated for injuries at Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth, and their mother faces felony injury to a child charges after a police investigation at Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene.

A third child died as a result of the alleged abuse.  One of the children being treated in Fort Worth suffered serious injuries.
