10-year-old girl charged with murder, trampled infant under feet

 

The girl is alleged to have stomped on the infant boy’s head at a Wisconsin day-care centre. 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 day-care in Wheaton, Wisconsin. He was taken to hospital in St Paul Minnesota where he was later announced dead.

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

Giving details of what happened, the girl said that she dropped the baby and he hit his head on a footstool and started crying so she freaked and started stamping on his head, Chippewa County Sheriff Jim Kowalczyk said.

At the time of the infant’s death, the girl had been staying with the family who operated the day-care centre in the town of Wheaton. She has now been placed in foster care.

The girl has been charged with first degree intentional homicide. She appeared in court wearing handcuffs and a black hoodie.

Cash bond was set at $50,000 (£38,000) at a court hearing yesterday.
