Michelle Southern reporting.
The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office says a woman is under arrest amid allegations that she tried to kill her 2-year-old little boy. EBRSO spokeswoman Casey Hicks says they received a call from a local hospital indicating that the toddler had been brought in by his mother, 29-year-old Samantha Snell, in critical condition and with multiple fractures.


"They were all over his body in different phases of healing," said Hicks. "He even had healing bite marks and his kidney had trauma to it."

Hicks says deputies responded to the hospital and interviewed Snell.

"She admitted to striking the child and he hit his head," said Hicks. "(Snell) said her son then began behaving strangely, he wasn't eating and was in and out of consciousness."

Hicks says Snell admitted to beating her child and biting him as a form of discipline. 

She says the woman was angry that her son got water out of the refrigerator which is when she hit him with a belt causing him to fall on the tile floor and hit his head.

"So the child is in critical condition and at this time Snell is charged with attempted first degree murder and second degree cruelty to juveniles," said Hicks.

Several large patient and hospital groups, including the AARP and American Medical Association, have expressed skepticism about the draft legislation when it was first released last week in the Senate, but ramped up their opposition to the bill after the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) presented its formal analysis on Monday. The CBO report estimates that over the next 10 years, 22 million Americans would end up uninsured under the Senate plan as compared to trajectories under current law. The difference was largely a result of deep cuts to Medicaid within the proposal, as well as smaller subsidies in the form of tax credits to help people purchase insurance on the...
