3-month-old Racine girl suffers apparent abuse



   RACINE, Wis. (AP) -- Racine authorities say a 3-month-old girl has been hospitalized with serious injuries consistent with child abuse, and a 25-year-old man who lived with her has been taken into custody.

   The state Department of Children and Families says the girl had head trauma consistent with being shaken, along with healing rib fractures.

   Racine police say the girl was hospitalized Sunday. She remained in critical condition Friday.

   A Journal Times of Racine report says the 25-year-old Racine man was arrested Friday.

   Police say the man's 1-year-old son lived in the same house as the girl, who was not the man's daughter. The boy was been placed in county custody.
