Bail has been set at a $100,000 cash bond for an Oxford woman accused of child neglect resulting in great bodily harm. According to court documents, in December 2012 police responded to a residence in the City of Adams for a 2-year old boy lying unresponsive on the living room floor. The child was cold to the touch. His face was blue and his breathing shallow when Adams Police Chief arrived. The mother, 26-year old Brittany Ingram, told police that she had put the boy to bed about 8pm the night before and when she awoke in the morning, found him lying at the bottom of the stairs unresponsive. The Department of Human Services had visited the home during a child neglect investigation and had advised Ingram to install a gate at the top of the stairs which had not been done. During a search, officers located three syringes and a spoon with burnt residue. The boy was taken to UW-Hospital in Madison. Records indicate he suffered from head trauma, acute respiratory failure, and had suffered a traumatic brain injury. Ingram has been charged with child neglect resulting in great bodily harm and possession of drug paraphernalia. Conditions of bond include no contact with her children or Isaac Salinas, who was also inside the residence at the time of the incident.
