MONROE, La. (AP) - A Monroe mother who previously admitted to repeatedly hitting her 1-month-old twins in their heads with her fist has pleaded guilty to 10 counts of second-degree cruelty to a juvenile.

The News-Star reports (https://tnsne.ws/1t69SGf ) Pernisha Simpson, who was 18 at the time of the crime, entered her plea Thursday.

Court records show the girl had nine skull fractures and the boy had one.

Simpson said she brought her daughter to the hospital when she saw the baby’s eyes were crossing and jumpy.

Police say the incidents happened over two-week span.
