Man gets 25 years for toddler's death in Winnebago County

Posted:

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- A 27-year-old man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison in the death of a 3-year-old girl in Winnebago County.

Post-Crescent Media reports Ryan Jorgenson, formerly of the Town of Menasha, was convicted for the first-degree reckless homicide of Addison Rochon. She was the daughter of his former fiancee.

Jorgenson initially told police the girl fell down the stairs. The child was rushed to a Neenah hospital on May 14 after Jorgenson said he found her collapsed and convulsing. She died a week later.

Jorgenson apologized Friday calling Addison Rochon "a beautiful, bright and cheerful 3-year-old girl."
