Mother charged with child abuse

WAKE COUNTY

Erica Lyn Pearson was booked Wednesday under a $25,000 bond.

According to court documents, the 22-year-old mother intentionally injured her 4-week-old baby.

Although the arrest warrant doesn't say how the injury happened, it does say the infant's skull was fractured.

If she gets out of jail, a judge ordered she stay away from the baby and any children under 16.
