Woman who fractured baby's skull gets prison time

ERIE, Pa. (AP) -- The sentence is five to 10 years in prison for a Pennsylvania woman who was convicted of swinging her newborn son like a weapon at her boyfriend, fracturing the baby's skull.

The woman, Chytoria Graham, had been fighting with her boyfriend after a night of drinking. She grabbed the four-week-old boy by his feet and swung him, hitting the boyfriend.

The baby has recovered and is living with Graham's family.

A jury in Erie convicted Graham of aggravated assault, child endangerment and other charges. Her lawyer says she plans to appeal.
