Deputies: Baby Sitter charged after infant breaks 4 bones

GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) " Authorities in Georgia say a woman has been taken into custody after an infant she was baby-sitting suffered four broken bones over the course of a month.

Multiple news outlets report that the Hall County Sheriff's Office says 38-year-old Robin Carter Capulin of Gillsville was arrested Wednesday and charged with second-degree cruelty to children.

Deputies say the 5-month-old baby fractured three leg bones and an arm bone between May 11 and June 11 at Capulin's home.

Officials say Capulin never told the child's mother about the baby being hurt and did not seek medical attention for the infant.

Sheriff's office spokesman Lt. Scott Ware says the child's arm injury was consistent with someone twisting the arm.

He says the child is healing and doing fine.

It's unclear whether Capulin has an attorney.
