BOILING SPRINGS, S.C. (AP) - A 3-year-old child whose injuries resulted in abuse charges against her baby sitter has died of those injuries.

Area media outlets report that Everly Grey Dickard died from head trauma at Spartanburg Regional Medical Center on Monday.

Last month her baby sitter, 32-year-old Katie Wheeler Harris of Boiling Springs, was charged with abuse inflicting great bodily injury. A spokesman for the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s office says the agency is awaiting autopsy results before upgrading charges.

Deputies were called to the hospital March 19 about suspected abuse and were told the child had a serious injury that caused bleeding on the brain and retinal hemorrhages.

Deputies said Harris gave them conflicting stories before saying the child fell from a swing.
