Parma | Mother charged with injuring 2-month-old baby

PARMA -- Police say they have charged a Parma woman with felonious assault and endangering children and she is being held in the Parma Jail on a $200,000 bond.

Parma police and paramedics from the Parma Fire Department arrived at the 11638 West Sprague Road address just before 7 p.m. Thursday for a report of a woman who slammed her 2-month-old baby into a bed.

When the officers arrived, they said they found Jessica Gunderman, 31, inside of the residence holding her 2-month-old daughter, who was crying at the time.

Paramedics immediately took the child to Parma Community General Hospital for treatment. The child was examined and determined to have an injury to her skull and was taken to Rainbow and Babies and Children's Hospital for treatment.

Officers at the scene conducted an investigation, and, based on that investigation, the officers determined there was probable cause to arrest Gunderman.
