Babysitter faces charges after infant found with 4 broken bones


GILLSVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Deputies say a Gillsville woman is in custody after an infant she was babysitting suffered four broken bones over the course of a month.

The Hall County Sheriff’s Office says 38-year-old Robin Carter Capulin was arrested Wednesday and charged with second-degree cruelty to children.

Deputies say the 5-month-old baby fractured three leg bones and an arm bone between May 11 and June 11 at Capulin’s home.

They also say Capulin never told the child’s mother about the baby being hurt and did not seek medical attention for the infant.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Lt. Scott Ware says the child’s arm injury was consistent with someone twisting the arm.

He says the child is healing and doing fine.

It’s unclear whether Capulin has an attorney.
