Babysitter accused of abusing infant

DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

A Deerfield Township woman is facing charges after police say she abused a 5-month-old infant she was babysitting.

Elizabeth Pennington, 33, is charged with one count of child endangering.

On March 13, deputies responded to South Harbor Drive in Maineville for an unresponsive 5 month old baby.  The babysitter reported that the infant became unresponsive after choking. Deerfield Township paramedics transported the child to the hospital where she was treated. 

A few days later, a social worker from Children's Hospital reported that the injuries on the child were consistent with inflicted trauma. 

Warren County Sheriff's Office Detectives began an investigation that showed the injuries were caused by non-accidental trauma. Pennington was charged in the Warren County Juvenile Court. A court date has not been set.

The child's condition is stable and is still receiving treatment.
