DENVER – A Denver woman faces child abuse charges for allegedly slamming her 6-month-old grandson on a bed earlier this month.

Rebecca Laca, 56, is charged with child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury, a third-degree felony.

The Denver District Attorney’s Office says Laca was taking care of the boy on Nov. 11. At some point, she “became upset” with the boy and slammed him on a bed.

A probable cause statement written by police says the boy suffered a subdural brain bleed and bleeding in the back of his eyes as a result of the alleged abuse.

Laca has been released after posting a $50,000 bond and is next scheduled in court Dec. 27.
