MILTON, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a 15-month-old has died from injuries that happened at a Panhandle day care center.

The day care owner was charged last week with one count of aggravated child abuse, but prosecutors told The Pensacola News Journal ( ) on Thursday that additional charges are forthcoming.

Authorities say the boy's injuries were consistent with violent shaking.

The Florida Department of Children and Families has revoked the Milton daycare operator's license and she's being held in the Santa Rosa County Jail without bond. Her next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 13.

Investigators say the alleged shaking happened Friday and the child died late Wednesday.
