Mom Faces Felony After Allowing Allegedly Abusive Boyfriend to Babysit


Lexington - A 20-year-old mom will face charges of felony child abuse after she allegedly allowed her boyfriend to babysit even after her child was injured under his supervision.

The woman was arrested last week, about a month after her boyfriend was placed under arrest.

Investigators looked into the case after the woman took her then 17-month-old son to the hospital with severe injuries.

Police said the explanation that was given and the injuries the boy had, like bleeding in his skull and other bruises, didn't match-up.

Additionally, authorities say they were already investigating injuries the child received while the man was watching the child back in October.

Both the mom and her boyfriend have posted bail.
