LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville mother is accused of physically abusing her 7-month-old son.

Nakisha S. Gill, 21, has told various stories about the cause of her son's brain hemorrhage as well as bruising to his face and ears, according to police, but has yet to provide a plausible explanation.

Police said when Gill was first questioned about the infant's injuries, she said a cousin dropped the child while holding him. She later told police that she was holding the baby while "horsing around" with a male she knows only by the name of K.O.

A forensic nurse told police the child's injuries are not consistent with the mother's stories.

Gill is charged with misdemeanor fourth-degree assault/child abuse.
