Vernon Woman Charged With Abusing Son

A Vernon woman is charged with abusing her 3-month-old son.

Vernon Police say Amanda McGuire caused head trauma that threatened the infant’s life.

The boy was brought to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center December 11.

The Hansen Drive resident is charged with first degree assault, risk of injury to a minor, and making false statements.

Police say the false statement charge relates to comments the 24-year-old woman made to investigators.

Vernon Police declined to discuss details like where and when the abuse allegedly took place.

McGuire is due in Rockville Superior Court Tuesday, January 28.
