SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Police have charged a 17-year-old mother as an adult with aggravated domestic assault and cruelty to a child after authorities say her 3-week-old son suffered life-threatening injuries from being shaken.

Police said the infant was in critical condition Tuesday at the University of Vermont Medical Center.

The mother, Desiree George of South Burlington, pleaded not guilty on Tuesday.

The Chittenden Unit for Special Investigations says it received a report of an unresponsive child that had been taken to the hospital Monday.

George is being held at the Woodside Juvenile Facility on $15,000 bail.

Her lawyer, Kathy Strahm of Burlington, declined to comment on the case.
