Child Seriously Injured, Mom’s Boyfriend Arrested

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Salt Lake City man is in jail after his girlfriend’s 1-year-old son suffered life-threatening head trauma.

Police say they arrested 24-year-old Brian Taylor on Monday on suspicion of child abuse.

Jail records say the boy was on life support Monday and wasn’t expected to survive.

Police say Taylor was alone with the child for a short period of time when the boy suffered his injuries. Officers say they got a medical call Monday afternoon, and the boy was taken to Primary Children’s Hospital.

Doctors there alerted police that the toddler had possibly been abused.
