Wis. felony charges for injuries to 8-month-old
A Nekoosa man and a Racine woman are charged with physically abusing an 8-month-old boy.
Robert Winker, 27, and Kurstyn Bieneman, 20, are facing multiple felony charges in Wood County, including child neglect resulting in great bodily harm.
A criminal complaint says the two were staying at a Nekoosa residence last August and were responsible for the baby's care. The child's grandmother took the boy to the hospital after discovering injuries.
The Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune says medical records show the baby had fractures in his wrist, legs, ankle and ribs. He also had a swollen eye, blood in his ear canals and bruises on his face.
A criminal complaint says Winker told investigators Bieneman was physically rough with the baby. Bieneman says she saw Winker shake the child.
