ELYRIA, OH (WOIO) - A 32-year-old woman has confessed to becoming overwhelmed by a screaming baby and shaking the child until it went limp.

The 4-month-old baby slumped over shortly after babysitter Stephanie Danicki bounced the child too hard on her knee without supporting the baby's head.

The Lorain County Prosecutor's Office says the child suffered shaken baby syndrome.

Danicki, who has three children of her own and is currently pregnant, was slapped with two counts of child endangering.
