Va. police charge caretaker in infant's death

Tuesday - 7/24/2012, 2:00pm  ET

VIENNA, Va. - A Chantilly woman has been charged in the death of an 11-month-old baby for whom she was caring.

Vienna police say Carol Lutsky was arrested Monday and charged with child abuse and murder.

The infant died last October of blunt force trauma to the upper body. The death was ruled a homicide.

Police spokesman Gary Lose says Lutsky was an acquaintance of the infant's mother and was babysitting for the child at the time the child suffered the injuries.

It was not immediately clear if Lutsky had a lawyer. No phone listing for her could immediately be found.

Lutsky was being held without bond at the Fairfax County Adult Detention center.
