LEXINGTON, Neb. (AP) - A 20-year-old Nebraska mom faces a felony child abuse charge after she kept allowing her boyfriend to babysit despite her son’s injuries.

KRVN reports (https://bit.ly/1llEfVr ) that the woman was arrested last week - about a month after her boyfriend.

Investigators began looking into case after the woman took her then 17-month-old son to the hospital on Feb. 18 with severe injuries.

Police say the boy’s bleeding in his skull and other bruises couldn’t be explained by the man’s explanation that he fell on top of the toddler.

Investigators found evidence of bruises and other injuries the boy sustained while the man was babysitting that date back to October.

Both the mom and her boyfriend have posted bail and have been released pending more hearings.
