Woman sentenced for injuring fiance's toddler

WINONA LAKE A Winona Lake woman, 36-year-old Karen Bartley, has been sentenced to six years in prison for hurting her fiancé’s toddler.

The Stacey Page Online reports that she and the child's father brought the child to the emergency back in January for constant vomiting.

Doctors found a fracture in the toddler’s skull, which Bartley claimed happened when the girl threw a tantrum and struck her head against a door. When medical evidence contradicted that statement, Bartley admitted she had become "overly aggressive" while playing with the child.

Bartley is barred from having contact with children under 10 years old as part of her sentence.
