JUNEAU, Wis. (AP) — The death of a toddler at a babysitter's Dodge County home in 2007 was initially ruled an accident.
Now prosecutors have filed charges of first-degree reckless homicide and physical abuse of a child against the babysitter, 47-year-old Renee Kuehl of Hustisford.
Injuries to another child who was in Kuehl's care last year caused investigators to take another look at the 2007 death. A 2-year-old girl suffered two skull fractures and bleeding of the brain. Kuehl says the girl fell on the cement driveway.
The Daily Citizen says the death of the 22-month-old boy in 2007 was initially ruled to be accidental due to a fall down a flight of stairs.
