Charges Filed Against Mom of Injured 11-Month Old

Charges have been filed against the mother of an 11-month-old girl who was brought to the hospital with several head and facial injuries.

The Department of Children and Families contacted Southington police in January because they suspected abuse when the little girl was brought to the Hospital of Central Connecticut Bradley Memorial Hospital with several head injuries.

Police said they determined that she had been with her mother, Brittany DeMasi, 26, of Southington, when she was hurt.

DeMasi wasn’t able to explain the injuries, police said, and has been accused of neglecting to provide adequate supervision of the child.

DeMasi turned herself in at the Southington Police Department on Monday after learning of the warrant for her arrest.

She was charged with risk of injury to child.

She was processed and released on a $5,000 non-surety bond.
