Sheriff: 10-year-old says she stomped head of baby in panic

Sheriff: 10-year-old says she stomped head of baby in panic

A western Wisconsin pickup truck driver was drunk when he hit and killed three Girl Scouts and a parent picking up litter over the weekend along a western Wisconsin highway, authorities said Monday.

State law required the matter, at least initially, to be held in adult court, Newell explained.

According to the Star Tribune, the alleged killer buried her head in her mom's arms while sobbing, moaning and crying through Monday's hearing.

First responders were called October 30 to a licensed home day care in the Town of Tilden near Chippewa Falls.

KWQC reported the girl was living at the foster home which also served as a daycare centre in the town of Wheaton.

Newell said "she stomped on his head, which results in the injuries that caused" his death.

Judge James Isaacson ordered a $50,000 cash bond, calling it "an appropriate resolution", while adding that a lot would happen in the ensuing 48 hours in determining where the girl will be placed. For now, she is at a secure detention center.

At the same time, BHP Billiton, which is a major exporter of iron ore, was forced to halt its operations due to the incident. An investigation into the incident is being carried out, ATSB said, and that damage to the train was "substantial".

The six-month-old was taken to Gillette Children's Hospital in Saint Paul, where he died two days later on 1 November.

"The child sustained head trauma and passed away November 1", Newell said. Investigators interviewed four people at the home and the girl, who lives with foster parents at the house, "confessed to her involvement in the situation", Kowalczyk said.

"He doesn't understand", Schneider said.

At about 11:40 a.m. on November 3, Treu's 2-ton truck veered over the center line of a county road, crossed the gravel shoulder and plowed into a ditch where the Chippewa Falls Girl Scouts Troop were doing a highway cleanup project.

"No one could turn around", mother and troop leader Robin Kelley said.

On Saturday November 3, 2018, at about 11:41am Chippewa Fire District and the Village of Lake Hallie Police responded to CTH-P north of CTH-OO in the Village of Lake Hallie, Chippewa County, Wisconsin for a traffic crash.

"It's not such a good morning for Chippewa County", Kowalczyk said to open a news conference about both matters.
