A 31-year-old babysitter in Palmdale was convicted on multiple charges, including second-degree murder, in the death of a 4-month-old boy.

A jury found that Brittany Ann Ingrassi is guilty of assault on a child becoming comatose, child abuse and assault on a child causing death. Jurors also found true, allegations that she inflicted great bodily injury on the victim.

The maximum sentence faced by the defendant is 25 years to life in state prison. Sentencing will take place on June 2.

Ingrassi was reportedly babysitting Aiden Lopez, at a residence in the 43400 block of Gadsen Avenue in Lancaster on March 22, 2016, authorities said.

When the child’s mother returned, the babysitter told the woman that her son was not breathing, court records say.

Aiden was rushed to a hospital, where he was found to have suffered skull fractures as well as a traumatic brain injury. He died at the hospital four days later.

Evidence presented at the trial showed the defendant was unhappy over being a babysitter, and that she was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident.
