Felony charges for injuries to 8-month-old

Posted:

WISCONSIN RAPIDS (AP) - A Nekoosa man and a Racine woman are charged with physically abusing an 8-month-old boy.

Twenty-seven-year-old Robert Winker and 20-year-old Kurstyn Bieneman are facing multiple felony charges in Wood County, including child neglect resulting in great bodily harm.

A criminal complaint says Bieneman and Winkler were staying at a Nekoosa residence last August and were responsible for the care of the baby. The child's grandmother took the boy to the hospital after discovering injuries.

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 Winkler told investigators Bieneman was physically rough with the baby. Bieneman says she saw Winkler shake the child.
