A Shorewood woman has been arrested, accused of physically abusing a 20-month-old boy she was babysitting.

Candace Turner, 33, is charged with physical abuse of a child and child neglect.

According to the criminal complaint, when police arrived at Turner's house on Woodruff Avenue, the child had about 30 bruises all over his body.

Dr. Lynn Sheets, the medical director of the Child Advocacy and Protection department of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin examined the toddler.
