Wisconsin Woman Charged With Abusing Baby
A Chippewa Falls woman is charged with abusing a baby last fall that sent the baby to the hospital.
30-year-old Erin K. Hill is charged with physical abuse of a child. Court documents say that Hill called 911 last November saying the 7-month-old baby in her care was sitting on the floor, when she hit her head.
After the child was taken to the hospital, doctors found the child had bleeding in her brain. Doctors determined that she had symptoms of shaken baby syndrome.
According to police, Hill later admitted to shaking the child.
Hill could face up to 40 years in prison if convicted.
