PARMA, Ohio (AP) - A judge has sentenced a northeast Ohio mother to six years in prison for slamming her 2-month-old daughter’s head into a bed repeatedly, fracturing the baby’s skull.

WOIO-TV (https://bit.ly/1whTGFU ) reports that 31-year-old Jessica Gunderman of the Cleveland suburb of Parma had pleaded guilty last month to several criminal charges including child abuse in the March 13 incident. She was sentenced Wednesday.

Gunderman had been charged with domestic violence, disorderly conduct and other crimes over the past few years.

She apologized in court. The child is now with family members.
