10-year-old Stomps On Head Of Baby In A Panic Says Sheriff

A 10-year-old girl dropped a six-month-old baby, and when the baby started to cry, she panicked and stomped on the child's head. She has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide says a western Wisconsin Sheriff.

In Chippewa County Circuit Court Monday, the 10-year-old girl appeared for a bond hearing where she was charged as an adult under Wisconsin Law.

According to prosecutors, on October 30th first responders were called out to a licensed daycare outside of Chippewa Falls where a baby was found unresponsive and bleeding from the head. Two days later, on November 1st, the baby died at a St. Paul Hospital.


The girl lived with her foster parents at the home and had told the investigators the baby's head had hit a footstool somehow, and in a panic, she stomped on its head when it began to cry, says the Chippewa County Sherriff James Kowalczyk.
