BOILING SPRINGS, S.C. (AP) - A 32-year-old Boiling Springs woman is accused of abusing a 3-month-old baby in her care.

Deputies were called to the hospital March 19 about suspected abuse. They tell local media outlets they were told a 3-month old there had a serious head injury that caused bleeding on the brain and retinal hemorrhages.

The baby had been brought to the hospital by her babysitter, Katie Wheeler Harris. Deputies said Harris gave them conflicting stories about what had happened, then failed a polygraph test.

Authorities say Harris ultimately admitted the child fell from a swing belonging to her parents.

Harris was arrested on Monday and charged with abuse inflicting great bodily injury on a child. Her attorney says the whole story of what happened hasn’t been told yet.
