In Nevada, Brayden Grusman-Buckmaster Death: Michelle Bork, Edward Thompson Charged With Murder Years After Shaking Baby, Cops Say | Shaken Baby Syndrome

The mother of a deceased 5-year-old has reportedly been charged with murder because her ex-boyfriend allegedly shook the boy as an infant.
Las Vegas woman Monique Bork, 26, reportedly brought her 6-week-old son, Brayden, to the hospital with serious head trauma in August 2006, according to 8 News Now.  His brain was reportedly swollen and bleeding, and his symptoms were consistent with shaken baby syndrome.
Brayden was reportedly on life support for 6 days. His injuries left him legally blind and suffering from cerebral palsy.
Police questioned both Bork and her boyfriend at the time, Edward Thompson.
Bork reportedly told police that a falling toy had hit Brayden in the head a few weeks earlier. Thompson, who is reportedly now 34, said that Bork was lying, and that really he had reportedly dropped a telephone on Brayden's face.
No arrests were made. After the incident, Brayden's maternal grandmother took custody of the boy for more than two years, before he was reportedly adopted by Tish Buckmaster and Gayle Grusman.
The boy reportedly spent most of that time in hospice care. He was reportedly fed through a gastronomy tube. 
When Brayden reportedly passed away in July 2011, at age 5, his deaths as ruled as a homicide, the result of the head trauma he sustained as a baby.
"He had no brain left from the injury," Grusman said.
