Shaler church fires day care worker accused of abusing infant

Shaler police arrested Julia Marie Spencer, 19, at her home in Hampton on Tuesday after reviewing video that they said showed her roughly handling, shoving and slamming down onto a crib a 5-month-old boy the day before at Glenshaw Presbyterian Church’s Early Learning Center, according to a criminal complaint.
