FORTVILLE, Ind. (WISH) – A Fortville couple faces charges of child abuse.

Police say Lisa Bozymski and her boyfriend David Lanning were caring for a 6-month-old girl when she was taken to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health.

Doctors said the baby’s face and head were swollen. After a series of tests, they decided those injuries were consistent with shaken baby syndrome.

Bozymski is the baby’s great aunt.

The baby’s mother and father have not been charged. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
