The Great Falls Tribune reports 21-year-old Jasmine Nichole Eskew was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault and criminal endangerment after police say she acknowledged shaking her 6-month-old daughter.

Police were called to an emergency room after the baby was brought in with bleeding in her brain. The child was flown to Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane, Wash., for treatment.

Court records say Eskew told police the baby was crying in her crib and she picked her up and shook her.

Medical personnel at Sacred Heart told detectives the infant’s injuries were life-threatening and likely disabling.

Eskew made an initial court appearance Wednesday. Her bond was set at $100,000. Home Page
