She was found guilty on two counts of aggravated battery and one count of attempted aggravated battery causing great bodily harm to a child under 13.
On May 29, 2016, police responded to Vazquez-Herandez’s residence where they spoke with the victim’s father, who had placed the call. Earlier that evening, he had attempted to give his daughter milk that she immediately spit out.
