Brittany R. Taylor, 25, has been charged with felonious assault and child endangering. She pleaded not guilty in court on Friday morning. Bond was set at $5,000, according to court records.

On Nov. 26, Springfield police officers were called to Dayton Children’s Hospital about a 2-month-old with a brain bleed, the report said. Taylor told police she was unsure what caused the injury and didn’t believe anyone would hurt the baby. She was unable to give any explanation, the report said, but told police an older child in the home throws toys.
