Portage Co. man charged with killing 2-year-old

PORTAGE COUNTY (WAOW) -- A Portage County man charged with killing a two-year-old made his first appearance in court on Monday. Reymundo Perez is accused of killing his girlfriend's son. 

Police said they came to this home in the town of Pine Grove on October 26th. Perez had called 911, saying two-year-old Felix wouldn't wake up. Police said they took Felix to a hospital, where he died two days later.

"The final incident involved a number of broken bones to a number of areas of the child's body, which caused the child's ultimate death," said Portage County district attorney Tom Eagon.

According to police reports, the initial autopsy showed Felix's spinal cord had also been severed.

Perez will be back in court next month.

Felix's mother, Beatriz Villa, also faces child abuse charges. But she is not being charged with murder.
