WINSTON-SALEM, NC (AP) -- A Winston-Salem man has been charged with felony child abuse after doctors told police his 4-month-old son had several fractures when he was admitted to the hospital for another cause. The Winston-Salem Journal reported that 23-year-old James Walter Duggins was charged after taking his son to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for a developmental issue known as "failure to thrive." Police say doctors found multiple fractures. Duggins was being held in the Forsyth County jail. It was unclear whether he had hired an attorney. (Copyright 2011 by The Associated Press.
