GRANDVIEW, Mo. (AP) - A 27-year-old Grandview babysitter has been charged with felony child abuse after police say she threw her friend’s 7-month-old son across a room and fractured his skull.

Angel Raya told police her son’s head was swollen after being left with Angela Waln last week. Raya tells KMBC-TV they have known each other for about 13 years and Waln was like a sister to her.

Police say Waln admitted to throwing the child after telling multiple lies about how the injury happened.

Doctors say the boy suffered two skull fractures and a brain bleed. He has been released from the hospital and is showing signs of recovery.

Waln is being held at the Jackson County Detention Center. Online jail records didn’t indicate bond or an attorney.
