A Springfield woman is facing multiple charges after she allegedly shook her two-month-old baby because it wouldn’t stop crying, according to a police report.
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.
On Dec. 7, Taylor admitted to allegedly shaking the child after an argument with her boyfriend, who wasn’t present, the report said. Taylor allegedly shook the child three times before she realized what she was doing and stopped. The child stopped crying and Taylor left the room, but didn’t seek medical treatment.
On Nov. 25, the child was taken to Springfield Regional Medical Center for vomiting and was later found to have head injuries. Taylor was arrested Dec. 7 and remains in the Clark County Jail.
