Man Indicted Accused Of Injuring An Infant

A Clay County man, accused of abusing an infant, is facing up to 99 years behind bars.

Montague, Clay, Archer County District Attorney Jack McGaughey said Michael Wayne Montgomery, 25, of Vashti, was indicted Monday by the Montague County Grand Jury on one count of injury to a child.

Michael Wayne Montgomery was arrested March 28 after police said he admitted to injuring his girlfriend's baby, while he was babysitting. The six-week-old child has a skull fracture and possible brain damage from wounds.

McGaughey said Montgomery faces five to 99 years in prison. He is being held on $100,000 bond.

The baby's mother Amber Lynn Crail, 17, of Bowie is facing charges of abandoning and endangering a child, a state jail felony.

She waited two days before taking the baby to Wise Regional Hospital for seizure like symptoms. The child was then transported to Cook Children's Hospital, where officials contacted Bowie police.

Montgomery is known to police. Crail does not have a criminal history.
