BRANDON, S.D. (AP) - Police say a Brandon day care provider has been charged with injuring a 15-month-old boy in her care.

The Argus Leader reports (https://argusne.ws/1obYM4d ) 30-year-old Sara Watters was charged with felony aggravated battery of an infant and felony abuse or cruelty to a minor child.

Brandon police said Wednesday medical personnel responded to a 911 call from Watters on Oct. 9 and found the boy unresponsive. He remained hospitalized Thursday and was in stable condition.

Police say his injuries were consistent with non-accidental trauma.

Watters says he was combative when she tried to change his diaper and he could have been injured when she tried to keep him still. She denied slamming him into the floor.

She has been released from jail on $20,000 bond. It wasn’t immediately clear if she has an attorney.
