An Albuquerque woman faced a judge on four counts of child abuse on Saturday.
Police say Adrienne Apodaca failed to take her cousin’s 1-year old son to the hospital after numerous medical emergencies.
Court Records state she and her boyfriend were taking care of the child last month.
Apodaca told police the boy went “lifeless” at least three times.
Police say she returned the baby to his grandmother without mentioning the situation.
Doctors say the child suffered brain bleeding, retinal hemorrhages and several bone fractures.
