Woman Charged with Assaulting Infant Daughter

SOUTH CANAAN TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A mother was arrested Friday in Wayne County for child abuse.

According to court papers, Emilee Decker caused injuries to her 3-month-old daughter consistent with shaken baby syndrome.

Authorities say the baby was taken to the hospital in September with life-threatening injuries including broken bones from her head to her toes.

Decker is charged with aggravated assault and child endangerment in Wayne County.

    Here is the sad part.
    There is a federal bill waiting to be voted on….are you ready?
    ANIMAL abuse would be a FEDERAL felony………BUT NOT CHILD ABUSE

    It really sickens my heart to read about little kids being killed and abused almost every week it seems. They need to be locked the heck up for a very long time with no chance of ever getting their children back!

    Yabbadude…you are so correct. There are so many good couples that would give anything to have a child but can’t have their own. The adoption process is so long and tough it like trying to get delta military clearance, but any idiot can have a child.

    Sickening, especially when you think some couples can’t have children and would be happy to have one and take care of it properly.
