A Houston mother is facing charges after doctors say her baby suffered three skull fractures consistent with non-accidental trauma.
Sabrina Sakiesha Loville is charged with injury to a child. Court documents state on May 11 Loville took her 6-month-old son to the hospital after she noticed a bump on his head. She said when she touched the bump, it felt mushy and he swatted her hand away.
According to court documents, doctors diagnosed the boy as having three skull fractures and a hematoma to the head. Doctors said the injuries are consistent with multiple impacts of blunt force trauma to the head from non-accidental trauma.
Investigators say Loville told them her son was crawling on the bed and fell off onto the carpeted floor at her north Houston residence. She told them he fell off the bed two or three other times and landed on his back. Police say Loville also told them he bumped his head on the metal bed rails.
Police say Loville was the only one to care for him and that she was the only one in the room when he fell.
Court documents state doctors said the baby's injuries are not consistent with Loville's explanation.
Loville, 26, is being held in the Harris County Jail on a $20,000 bond.
