A day care worker in Maryland's Talbot County is accused in the death of a baby in her care.

Maryland State police say the child suffered injuries consistent with Shaken Baby Syndrome. The D.C. medical examiner's office says nine-month-old Trevor Ulrich died last month from inflicted head trauma.

Paramedics found the baby in cardiac arrest at Dobson's day-care center in Trappe, Maryland on September 2nd. The child died the next day at Children's Hospital in Washington. Investigators say the baby boy had been in 52-year-old Gail Dobson's care for two days.

Dobson is charged with manslaughter and child abuse resulting in death.
