Kaitlin and Tyler Hussung are charged with abusing their eight-week-old son and causing permanent injury. Doctors say the little boy could have even died.
The Hussungs took their son to the emergency room at Cincinnati Children's Hospital on Oct. 12 after he had seizures. Doctors determined that the baby had brain bleeding. They told investigators that the injuries appeared to come from the shaking or slamming of the baby.
Detectives learned Kaitlin Hussung told her mother the day before the boy went to the hospital, that she was "overwhelmed" because the baby had been projectile vomiting. She said she was crying and about to pull her hair out because she was so frustrated.
Doctors say the baby could have died and he now suffers from cerebral vision impairment as a result of those injuries.
