ELLWOOD CITY, Pa. —

In a surprising turn of events, a judge has dismissed all charges against a woman accused of violently shaking her relative's 6-month-old baby boy until his brain bled.

“God took care of it,” said Amy Jo Market as she walked out of court Thursday.

Police said Market made a full confession, but the judge believed the confession should have never been entered into evidence and was forced.

In court, Channel 11 heard Market on tape admit to assaulting the baby because he wouldn’t stop crying.

The boy’s mom told Channel she’s upset and said the judge got it wrong.  She added that the case has torn her family apart.

The district attorney didn’t comment on the case, saying it’s still under investigation.  Prosecutors plan to re-file charges against Market.
