In Massachusetts, Mass. man held on high bail in injured baby case | Shaken Baby Syndrome

A 22-year-old North Attleborough man has reportedly been held on $100,000 bail after pleading not guilty to injuring his friend's 1-month daughter he was babysitting.

Authorities say Matthew Johnson reportedly caused injuries to the baby earlier this month including a brain injury, bruises and six rib fractures. A doctor told police the injuries were consistent with shaken baby syndrome.

Johnson told investigators he reportedly tripped over a child's toy and accidentally dropped the child, causing the injuries.

Johnson's girlfriend, Eden Beauregard, was also reportedly helping care for the child and is facing a charge of permitting substantial injuries to a child and reckless endangerment of a child.

The baby reportedly remains hospitalized.
