Iowa woman accused of tossing infant gets 2 years of probation
CLINTON, Iowa (AP) -- A Clinton woman accused of shaking her infant daughter and tossing her into a bassinet has been given a suspended sentence.
The Clinton Herald reports that 22-year-old Naelynn Trude was sentenced last week to five years suspended and two years of probation. She'd pleaded guilty to child endangerment resulting in injury, which had been reduced in return for Trude's plea.
Investigators say Trude acknowledged shaking the little girl in July and tossing her into the bassinet while she continued to cry.
A doctor says the baby's injuries included a skull fracture and retinal bleeding.
