Wiese is still being held in the Collin County Jail on more than $600,000 bond after five new charges were added in early January.

The incidents include a 7-month-old with a broken arm and video of Wiese hitting an infant repeatedly in the head.

Wiese was arrested in December after video from inside the school recorded her slamming a 5-month-old baby onto a table.

There's also video of the infant room worker grabbing a 2-month-old by his legs and shaking him up and down and Wiese forcefully slamming a toddler into a table.

Wiese was a registered nurse who lost her license due to drug abuse.

At 2-months-old, Kairo Grant was one of the victims. His family said he suffered numerous broken bones.
