HARTFORD, Conn. – High bail has been set for the parents of a seriously injured 6-week-old baby in Connecticut who is not expected to survive.
Twenty-three-year-old Edwin Babilonia and 20-year-old Ashley Perez were arraigned Friday on charges including cruelty to persons and leaving a child under 12 unsupervised.
A Superior Court judge set bail at $500,000 for Perez and $750,000 for Babilonia.
A public defender for the couple says the injuries suffered by the infant were accidental.
Hartford police say the baby was taken to Connecticut Children's Medical Center on Thursday with cranial bleeding, severe bruising, rib fractures and a collarbone fracture. Police describe the injuries as "non-survivable."
Prosecutors say additional charges are possible.
