Lexington Mother Charged After Two-Month-Old Injured

A Lexington mother now faces charges after her young daughter suffered some serious injuries.

Police arrested Nena Taylor late this afternoon, charging her with two counts of endangering the welfare of a minor.

Taylor's boyfriend, Reginald Vann Phifer, has already been charged with assault.

Police say he bashed the two-month old girl's head against a bed post and tried to smother her.

The child is now in fair condition at Kentucky Children's Hospital.

    Finally, the mother is charged too and she should be. It was her decision to leave this baby with a monster! I hope they execute you both! Neither of them deserve to live for what they did to that baby! There is no excuse for it. If you didn't want that child, then there are plenty of people who did! It is evident that this woman did not love this child or else she wouldn't have left her with a monster. I hope the judge throws the book at you both and that this child will be placed with a family who truly loves her!
