TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A baby remains in critical condition after his mother and mother's boyfriend were booked into the Pima County Jail Monday on child abuse charges.

Tucson Police say a 1-year-old boy who had bruising on his head and body was brought into a local hospital on September 2 by 23-year old Diana Noncheva and 29-year-old Bryan Barker.

Police determined the injuries to the baby occurred under the boyfriend's care earlier that day at the couple's residence in the 4800 block of E. 29th Street.

Police say Barker reportedly contacted Noncheva to inform her he had dropped the baby, who was unresponsive. When Noncheva got home from work, the baby was still unresponsive and police say the couple called a friend about one hour later to take them and the baby to the hospital.

Barker was charged with two counts of child abuse for causing injuries and then failing to seek medical treatment for the baby, according to police.

Noncheva was charged with one count of child abuse for being aware of the baby's injuries but failing to immediately seek medical attention.
