A Muskogee babysitter is behind bars accused of shaking a 19-month-old baby boy.  Police say Sheri Wright first told them her five-year-old son hit the baby with a plastic truck.  But, they say she later admitted she unintentionally shook him too hard and played too roughly with him.

The toddler is in intensive care at a Tulsa hospital with a skull fracture and concussion.

Wright has a previous conviction for drug possession and tested positive for cocaine earlier this week.
