"no bruises today, right? is her head, OK?"
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WKMG) – Text messages show a mother knew her baby was being abused by the child’s father but still allowed him to care for the infant, according to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies said they found the texts after the 3-month-old daughter of Andrew Shelley and Melissa Burt was taken to a hospital in critical condition earlier this month suffering from broken ribs, a brain bleed, two skull fractures, a fractured femur and a fractured tibia.
Shelley is accused of causing the infant’s injuries while Burt was at work.
Records show that days before the girl was hospitalized, Burt sent Shelley a text asking, “no bruises today, right?” and another one asking, “is her head, OK?”
