Baby Injured, Gloversville Woman Charged

In Gloversville, a woman is accused of Endangering the Welfare of a Child after a disturbing string of events earlier this month.

Police say they were called to an apartment on Fremont Street on January 4th, after a neighbor heard a loud noise. Officers say when they arrived their heard a baby crying and that 32 year old Stephanie N. Wilson didn't answer the door for almost 20 minutes.  By the time she opened the door police were about to force entry.  

Officers say they found the baby with untreated 2nd and 3rd degree burns and they found Wilson highly intoxicated. They say Wilson could barely stand, sit up or even speak.  It is unclear when or how the 4-month-old was injured.  The child was taken to the hospital.

Wilson was also taken to the hospital with a blood-alcohol content that is considered to be above the threshold of possible death due to alcohol poisoning.  Wilson's B.A.C. was reportedly .477%, nearly 6 times the legal limit.  

Child Protective Services has been called to assist in the case.
