The mother of a child known as Baby Nora now is in trouble with the law.
Melinda Hamilton of Hannibal was arrested on a probation violation. She has a bond of $20,000.
Court documents show she had served 120 days of a 10-year sentence in a Missouri prison on felony drug charges. She received five years of supervised probation.
The baby's grandmother told KHQA Baby Nora now is staying with foster parents.
The child is now breathing on her own and is wearing a neck brace as she recovers from her injuries.
The man accused of causing her injuries, Dustin Dye, will be back in court late next month for a preliminary hearing.
He could face up to two consecutive life sentences if convicted of the felony assault charges against him.
