Mother Confronts Boyfriend About Daughter's Swelling Head

Noel Maxwell went to pull the covers up over her sleeping daughter when she noticed something odd about the side of her head. Her mother allowed her boyfriend, Andrew J. Milburn, to take her 3-year-old daughter to a party that he said was at his parent's house the next town over.

Noel stayed behind to get some sleep and was still asleep when her daughter returned home that night. The next day is when she felt a massive swelling on the side of her head that protruding from her skull. Noel then confronted Andrew who said she may have fallen from a chair at his parent's house.

Noel rushed her child to the hospital where doctors at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Frankfort, Indiana, near the family’s home, said that the extensive swelling was caused by extremely rough pulling on the child’s hair, forcibly removing the child’s scalp from her skull. This trauma results in severe bruising, internal bleeding, and swelling.

It appears that Andrew became abusive with the girl at his parent's party. A police investigation determined that the girl was struck multiple times on her head before being dragged around or pulled by her hair.

Milburn was arrested on Tuesday and charged with battery resulting in serious bodily injury to a person less than 14 years of age. He is being held on a $25,000 bond.
