YORK COUNTY, SC — A former York Police Officer accused of abusing his own baby is out of jail on $100,000 bond.  He has to wear an ankle monitor and can’t be around children under 12 months without supervision.

Robert “Jeff” Taylor is charged with felony child abuse.  He faced a York County judge for a bond hearing Wednesday.  Police arrested Taylor and the baby’s mother, Audrey Schurig, two weeks ago in Charlotte.  

Their three-month-old is being treated at Levine Children’s Hospital for severe brain and neck injuries.  The prosecutor says the baby is not expected to survive.  Schurig, a former Chester Police Officer, is charged with neglect.
