State Police said investigators were contacted by the Department for Health and Family Services Special Investigations on December 17, 2013, about a possible child abuse case after a 17-month boy was taken to the hospital unresponsive and not breathing due to a possible brain injury.

Investigators said the child underwent surgery and remains on life support.

State Police said their investigation led to the arrest of Natisha Schlabach, 24, of Flemingsburg on December 20, 2013. 

Investigators said Schlabach is the child's foster mother. 

They said the child had been in her care since June.

State Police said Schlabach was charged with Child Abuse 1st Degree.

She was lodged in the Mason County Detention Center.

Investigators said more arrests were pending.
