10-year old girl charged with murder after stomping on head of a 6-month old baby

A 10-year-old girl has been arrested and taken into custody over the murder of a six-month-old baby boy. 

Chippewa County District Attorney Wade Newell told the court that the girl accidentally dropped the baby, who hit his head on a stool and started crying.

“She panicked and didn’t know what to do and didn’t want to get into trouble,” Newell said, “and then she proceeded to stomp on the 6-month-old’s head.”

 

She appeared in court wearing cuffs on Monday where she sobbed into her mother’s arms.
 
Police said that they received a call on October 30 from a caretaker saying that they had found the boy bleeding from the head and unresponsive at a foster care, which doubles as a daycare in Wheaton, Wisconsin. 

He was taken to hospital in St Paul Minnesota where he was later pronounced dead from a fractured skull and injuries initially inflicted. Medical specialists told detectives that the baby’s injuries were “consistent with child abuse, not by accidental circumstances.”

Police said four children and an adult were questioned and they all pointed the finger at the 10-year-old girl. She was arrested an later admitted that she hurt the baby.


The girl has been charged with first degree intentional homicide. She did not plead to the charge against her and remains in jail in lieu of a $50,000 cash bond.
