In Florida, Murder trial begins for former Palm Harbor day care owner accused of shaking baby to death | Shaken Baby Syndrome

As the murder trial of Stephanie Spurgeon reportedly opened Tuesday, lawyers began their work by questioning dozens of people and selecting a jury.
But the key people in this case could be the doctors.
Stephanie Spurgeon, is reportedly a former Palm Harbor day care owner accused of killing a 1-year-old by shaking the girl to death.
Reportedly in August 2008, 1-year-old Maria Harris was dropped off at Spurgeon's in-home day care at 830 Edgehill Drive in Palm Harbor.
But reportedly when her mother arrived at the end of the day, Maria was unresponsive. The family reportedly called 911 and took the girl to the hospital, where she was treated for serious head injuries. She died eight days later.
Spurgeon initially was arrested on reportedly a charge of aggravated child abuse, and later was indicted on a first-degree murder charge.
