CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) — A Gary baby sitter has been charged with battery and neglect in the April 2016 death of an 8-month-old baby in her care.

Lake County police on Tuesday said prosecutors have approved the charges against 26-year-old Trisha Woodworth in the death of Maci Moor of Hammond. Woodworth was arrested Monday.

Paramedics were called April 15, 2016 to a Gary residence, where the baby was found breathing but unresponsive. She was taken to an Indiana hospital and then airlifted to a Chicago hospital where she died two days later. The Cook County medical examiner found that the baby died from head injuries due to child abuse and a contusion. Police say the injuries were consistent with shaken baby syndrome.

Woodworth doesn't have a listed phone number and court records don't list an attorney to pursue comment.
