Woman Sentenced for Swinging Baby at Boyfriend

An Erie woman has been sentenced to five to 10 years in prison for swinging her 4-week-old son at her boyfriend and striking him with the boy.

Twenty-eight-year-old Chytoria Graham was convicted in October of aggravated assault and other charges.

Graham says she missed her children as she was in court for sentencing Wednesday.

Prosecutors say Graham and her boyfriend got into a fight early on Oct. 8, 2006, after Graham came home from a night of drinking. They say Graham grabbed her son, Jarron, by his feet and swung him, hitting the boyfriend.

That fractured the infant's skull. The baby has recovered.

Graham was also placed on probation for two years.
