A 2-month-old baby suffered massive, permanent brain damage in what police are describing as child abuse.
The girl, identified in criminal charges as F.E., had been dropped off at her great-aunt's Salt Lake City home Sept. 22 while her mother went to work at a job she had started two weeks earlier, police wrote in court documents.
That night, the aunt called the mother to report F.E. appeared to be having a seizure, police wrote. At the hospital, doctors found evidence of traumatic brain injury and rib fractures, police wrote.
