The child's mother, Jessica Silveria, 26, pleaded not guilty to permitting substantial injuries to a child under 14 and intimidation of a witness. She was also ordered held without bail.
The girl lost the upper part of her lip and her ear was so mutilated that surgery could not return it to its natural state. The child also suffered other human bites on her body, New Bedford police Capt. Richard Spirlet said.
Police believe the biting attacks began in January and continued until April. New Bedford police began investigating in mid-May after the girl was taken to Children's Hospital in Boston. The girl and her older brother have been taken into state custody.
