Woman arraigned in beating of 6-month-old baby


The afternoon arraignment of a woman accused of beating a 6-month-old baby nearly led to a fight between the baby’s family and the family of the accused.

Brenda Moore, 51 of Cohasset Drive, was arraigned today before Judge Robert Douglas of Youngstown Municipal Court. She is in Mahoning County jail on charges of child endangering and felonious assault.

Judge Douglas set bond at $500,000 in the case.

Immediately following the court hearing, the baby’s aunt, grandmother and other family members argued with Moore’s daughter outside city hall. The argument almost became physical before court security and police intervened and separated the families.
