Woman charged for assaulting 1-year-old

NEW CASTLE — A New Castle woman was arrested and charged with the assault of a year-old child in Scott Township.

Nicole Martin, 26, of New Castle was arraigned before District Judge David Rishel on a charge of simple assault. She was lodged in the Lawrence County jail on $1,000 bond.

Pennsylvania state police said charges were filed because Martin’s actions, at 2:15 p.m. Sunday, caused the victim to strike a wall and the side of a refrigerator during an argument in a Harlansburg Road house.

Police said the victim sustained redness, swelling, bruising and abrasions on his face and forehead. He was transported to Grove City Hospital for evaluation and treatment.

Lawrence County Children and Youth Services was also contacted and told of the incident.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
