New York State Police arrested a Lyons couple and accused them of endangering the welfare of a 7-week-old infant girl in December.
The infant suffered broken ribs, a broken leg and a brain injury. Doctors at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester told authorities the injuries were not accidental.
On April 30, state police arrested Michael J. Casey, 23, and Samantha Mesleyn, 21, both of 7312 Old Lyons Road.
Mesleyn is the infant's mother and brought the baby to the Rochester hospital Dec. 21 for treatment. Casey is not the child's father.
State police Investigator John Stubbe said investigators have not determined who caused the injuries.
Casey and Mesleyn were living at the same address with several other people, the district attorney said, but the couple told investigators they were the primary caregivers.
The endangering charge is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in county jail. The charge alleges the couple did not provide proper care for the infant, Stubbe said, not that they injured the child.
Casey and Mesleyn were arraigned in Lyons Town Court, where bail was set at $25,000 cash or $50,000 bond.
